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)

It is do or die in the second leg and i don't expect to hear any away game disadvantages, if we want to conqure africa we have to beat teams home and away. That chiefs Angolan team is in for helluva day at the office when we meet again. They should ask Kaizer Swallows or Kaizer Wits or even Mamelodi Chiefs what we are capable of doing when disperately need something.

With the class and experience of the likes of Bennie and Chansa we going to bring these Angolaans motaung family down. 3-0 will be the score.

Recreativo do Libolo bliksem us for real, i don't see out team coming back from that 1-3 drubbing. I don't want to put the blame on Leal only for the loss but the whole team including Dr Khoza. I'm the laughing stock @ work, Zebras & Sunclowns are having a field day with us today, i should have stayed @ home yazi...

The results of the game do not reflect exactly which team was better, Pirates dominated the game though failed to score goals. The Angolians utilised their chances and won, Pirates can go out to Angola and win the game with more determination, for nothing is impossible when u do it with determintion.

We are a big team and its also normal to lose.

Lets lift our heads up and focus on the game against Platinum, If the guys believe they can redeem themselves in Angola, then lets support them.

As for Chiefs fans - Guys your problems are stil the same, Dont laugh at a team that has won 2 trophies this season, what have you got to show this season.

As for Sundowns fans - Guys your team is showing signs of choking once again, the gab is getting smaller.
