MTN8: Riveiro – We Will Be Ready For Sundowns

Orlando Pirates coach José Riveiro says they are motivated to reach the final of the MTN8 and believes they will be ready when they face Mamelodi Sundowns in the semi-final.

Pirates were drawn against the defending champions Sundowns in the semi-final in a draw conducted on Monday evening.

“We are motivated to go until the end in this competition and of course, once you are in the semifinals you can expect any opponent. We got a very good one. We will be ready to be at a good level at that time,” Riveiro said.

“It’s going to be an interesting duel. I think there’s still one month between now and before we play the game, so it’s difficult to estimate how good the teams are going to be in that moment.

“I think it is going to be attractive matches for the fans, plenty of emotions with two good teams and a pitch full of quality players from both sides.

“It’s probably going to be decided in the second game, so my prediction is it’s going to be equal games and hopefully with plenty of goals, and emotions.”
