Ofori is making his second straight start after returning from a long-term injury spell.
The right-back has proved to be a vital asset for Bucs, especially as he has four goals in the continental competition and the start offers him a chance to increase his tally.
Mako - who has become an undroppable player - starts at left-back ahead of Innocent Maela, who is benched again.
The Nigerian has been a consistent figure at the heart of Pirates’ defence and starts alongside Ntsikelelo Nyauza.
Nyauza will wear the captain's armband once more and partner Ndah in defence as Happy Jele is on the bench.
He was a starter in the first leg encounter, which they won 6-2, and he keeps his slot in midfield for the return leg.
After he missed the Soweto Derby against Kaizer Chiefs due to suspension, the Bafana Bafana star returned for the Nedbank Cup against Gallants.
He has kept his slot for the continental duel as Pirates look to return to winning ways.
Makaringe returns as Thembinkosi Lorch, who came on as a substitute in the cup match against Gallants, is missing altogether.
Dlamini has seemingly earned the trust of his coaches as he is deployed in what is his fifth straight start.
Going into the game, he should be motivated by the goal he scored in the first leg.
Although the Namibian did not score, he provided three assists in the big win during the away game, and he remains a threat Royal Leopards must keep close eyes on.
The Ghanaian has been trusted to lead the attacking line once more, but will he get his second continental goal against the group rivals?
