Orlando Pirates lose to Recreativo do Libolo of Angola

Posted: 19 February 2012 Time: 18:46

It was a disappointing result for Orlando Pirates, as they were beaten 3-1 by Recreativo do Libolo of Angola in their first CAF Champions League match.

The game was played at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Sunday.

Rooi Mahamutsa scored a consolation goal deep in injury time, but it was too little too late.

Maieco Domingos Henrique bagged a brace for Libolo, scoring in the 12th and 16th minute.

Henri Camara scored just after the hour mark to make it 3-0, before Mahamutsa scored in the final seconds.

The result will not please club chairman Irvin Khoza, who is known to be very keen for Bucs to take the Champions League once more.

The teams face each other again in the second leg on the weekend of March 2-4.

Scorers Pirates: Rooi Mahamutsa (93)

Recreativo do Libolo: Maieco Domingos Henrique (12, 16), Henri Camara (62)

To all of you who are happy about our loss,this is what i have to say to you-Pirates is one of the few teams in south africa with less foreign players playing for them and yet they have all psl trophies in their offices,so our loss can only mean that as south africans we are weak when it comes to football,all you othr team supporters let your team win something domestically before you start running your mouth.

i remember when Chiefs and Ajax won by 3 goals and celebrated like they have won the league. Pirates went 16 games unbeaten and reached all cup final which was historical. Pirates won all the trophies and the lague.

This season, Pirates has won 2 cups and will win the remaining 2 while every foll will celebrated 3x3.

Rudolf Krol was mastermind.Unbelievably winning so many cups without an assistant coach.

Though I'm not bucs but praise must be given for the job well done by him.

From the beginning I doubted Leal's pedigree & the arrival of Bennie,the resilient of Thulasizwe Mbuyane & contribution of Chansa are what probably make him look good & if Bennie can lose that appetite then Leal will hope his new signings rescue him.

King, lol. You're just like Pipitso! Did I hear you say :"anything is possible, these are the group stages"!? Lol.

King, these are preliminary two-legged knockout rounds. For your info. If you don't by some trebble miracle score 3 in Angola, consider yourselves eliminated........Football 101 is taught in Fanakalo at the Varsity of Nine Cararat and Tsharara! Lol.

@KING....u are mistaken bro dis is not group stages but preliminary round. The winners go to the group stages and loosers go home. If u dont win in Angola, the wet drim is over

our big mouth from galaxy of stars are quite. khoza must be very irritated after spending so much. Is game over pirate will not go anywhere in the competition. They must come back and be punished by psl teams. This shows that big mouth and big spending cannot win you games. Maybe khoza will buy the team frm angola since he is loaded
