Orlando Pirates will lock horns with Horoya AC in the 2018/19 CAF Champions League match on Friday.

Kick-off is at 18h00 CAT.

The Group B encounter will take place at the Orlando Stadium in the South African city of Johannesburg.

The South African giants drew 0-0 with Zimbabwean champions FC Platinum away in their opening Group B game which was played last weekend.

The draw placed Pirates on the third spot level on points with group leaders and defending champions Esperance de Tunis.

The Buccaneers will look to their Zambian attackers Justin Shonga and Augustine Mulenga when they host Horoya.

Meanwhile, Horoya were held to a 1-1 draw by Tunisian champions Esperance at home in maiden Group B encounter which was played last week Friday.

As a result, the Guinean champions are placed second on the group standings - a point above fourth-placed Platinum.

Burkina Faso attacker Ocansey Mandela Amamoo, who hit the back of the net for Horoya against Esperance, is the dangerman for the HAC.

Rwandan match referee Jean Claude Ishimwe will officiate the game between Pirates and Horoya.
