All is set for the CAF Champions League Group B encounter pitting FC Platinum and Orlando Pirates at Barbourfields Stadium this afternoon.

FC Platinum will be hoping to begin on a positive note and claim pole position after Esperance and AC Horiya played out a 1-all draw yesterday.

It is the first time FC Platinum will be playing in the CAF Champions League mini league.

Facing Orlando Pirates will be a tough prospect for the platinum miners given the Sea Robbers experience and history of having won the competition in 1996.

Pirates have two Zimbabwean internationals in their side, Marshal Munetsi and Kudakwashe Mahachi.
