Mamelodi Sundowns’ Sibusiso Vilakazi fully understands that a match against Orlando Pirates will always not be an easy affair.
He’s, however, sure that the Brazilians will prevail against the Buccaneers when they clash in a DStv Premiership match at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria on Friday (19h30).
“We expect a very, very tough game. Of course, they want to improve on their performance against Moroka Swallows,” Vilakazi said referring to Pirates’ 1-1 on Tuesday.
“They will want to improve, try to get maximum points when they play us at home. They have been good, they have had wins.”
Vilakaziwho turns 32 on 29 December, is wary of facing players like Bandile Shandu an Deon Hotto.
Meanwhile, the Brazilians have been incredible this season and that they are yet to lose bears testimony to that.
The Tshwane giants have collected 40 points after winning 12 times and drawing four matches.
