Al Ahli Tripoli
Last five matches: WWDDW
Al Ahli Tripoli are second on the Libyan league table with eight points behind first-placed Al Ittihad.
They have lost just once since the commencement of the competition this year. They have beaten Pyramids, Al Ittihad and CS Sfaxien in this competition.
It looked like their journey was going to come to an end when they were paired with their fellow Libyan team, Al Ittihad in the quarterfinals but pulled up one of the greatest surprises in this year's tournament by playing out a (0-0) away from home before beating Al Ittihad (1-0) in front of their fans to progress to the semifinals.
I think it's high time they start taking them seriously, they are unbeaten in the last seven matches played so far in this competition, in fact, they have only lost once which was their first game against the Pyramid FC.
Last five matches: WWDLW
The Buccaneers might finally lay their hands on the Confederation title after failing to win it in 2015, they are the only hope for South Africans in the continental tournament this season.
They have won eight, drew once and lost twice in all their matches played in this competition. They finished the group phase as the table topper with two points above Al Ittihad of Libya. Their quarterfinal matches ended in a (1-1) aggregate as they progressed on penalties.
They are not doing very well in the South African league and might not qualify for this competition next season.
They are well experienced in this competition and hopefully, they can progress this time.
Expert Betting Tips
Both teams haven't met before, however, Orlando Pirates were paired with the best team in Libya, Al Ittihad in the group stages as the Buccaneers only took a point in both legs against the Northern African team.
Orlando Pirates are not well motivated for this match as they head here on the back of a defeat to TS Galaxy in the South Africa league, the home team is more than capable of producing a positive result here, bet on a home win or draw and under 3.5 for 1.8.
A huge risk for a home to win for 2.25 won't be a bad option.
Bet on under 10.5 corners for 1.70.
