Botswana champions Jwaneng Galaxy are on the same level as Orlando Pirates, head coach Morena Ramoreboli has warned.
While the Buccaneers are expected to ease past Galaxy, Ramoreboli believes his side can get something from the CAF Champions League preliminary tie, and it won’t be a major ‘upset’.
Jose Riveiro’s side travel to the National Stadium in Gaborone to face Galaxy in the first leg of the CAF Champions League preliminary qualifier on Sunday afternoon.
Beating Orlando Pirates won’t be a major upset – Morena Ramoreboli
Beating Orlando Pirates with Maluti FET College was an upset, yes. But beating Orlando Pirates with Jwaneng? I don’t think it would be an upset,” Ramoreboli said as quoted by iDiskiTimes.
“Here we’re in the same competition, same division, different countries. So obviously, we’re competing with Orlando Pirates in the CAF Champions League because they qualified. We are the champions of Botswana. We are more or less equal by that virtue.”
