Orlando Pirates development coach Augusto Palacios believes the Soweto giants will walk away with the Absa Premiership title this season.

 

Pirates are currently top of the log with 47 points, followed by Mamelodi Sundowns who have two games in hand.

 

But Palacious believes all Bucs have to do to realise their dream is win their four remaining matches.

 

Palacious won the league with the Sea Robbers as head coach in the 2011/12 season after taking over from the Brazilian Julio Leal mid-season.

 

“I think the last couple of games, I believe scoring will be more important,” Palacious tells world cup odds to win.

 

“In 2011/12 when we won against SuperSport [United] in the last minute with Lucky Lekgwathi, now the same story is coming now, last minute again in the game against Bidvest [Wits], it was an own-goal but the goal made us win one nil [laughs].

 

“It’s a very strange the history of football you see. Very coincidence, with the same coach [Gavin Hunt], in the same situation in the league and I think we were remaining with about four games or something. The game against Bidvest was very crucial.

 

“I know it’s very difficult because Sundowns still have to play, but the good of Pirates is winning the remaining games, it’s very good. I’m really happy.

“I think the technical team have enough experience, the commitment, discipline. The way I see it this is the working together. The players are hungry to win the league, it’s very important, you can see the player when he is scoring goals the celebration there is spirit, one player coming in one player coming out… it’s very good for the players.
