Orlando Pirates draw with Libolo

Posted: 3 March 2012 Time: 18:00

Orlando Pirates have been knocked out of the CAF Champions League preliminary round following their 1-1 draw with Recreativo do Libolo of Angola on Saturday afternoon at the Patrice Lumumba Stadium.

Bucs went into this match on the back foot, having lost 3-1 in the first leg two weeks ago in Port Elizabeth.

The reigning PSL champions needed to score three goals without reply to progress and it was no surprise when they went on the offensive from the first whistle, but the task was not made easy by Libolo who played a 5-3-2 formation from the onset.

However, it was Libolo who took the lead in the 35th minute when their skipper Maieco Henrique, who bagged a brace in the first leg, scored with a header from a corner kick.

Libolo’s lead was shortlived though, as Bucs finally got the breakthrough via the boot of Andile Jali, who pulled one back for Bucs from close range on the stroke of halftime.

Pirates needed three goals in the second half to at least force the match into extra time and Bucs coach Julio Leal brought in Tokelo Rantie for Bongani Ndulula in the 52nd minute.

Six minutes Benni McCarthy replaced Dikgang Mabalane and Pirates continued to press forward.

Pirates thought they had scored in the 71st minute through Siyabonga Sangweni from a cross by Oupa Manyisa, but the goal was disallowed after McCarthy was adjudged to have been offside when Manyisa played the ball.

Despite putting up a gallant fight Pirates couldn’t get the goals they needed and Libolo won 4-2 on aggregate to send Bucs packing.

Pirates line-up: Josephs - Nzunga, Cloete [Mhlongo 88th], Mahamutsa, Sangweni - Jali, Mabalane [McCarthy 58th], Manyisa, Segolela - Mbuyane, Ndulula [Rantie 52nd]

I have no sympathy for these Chibuku donkeys. I'm very happy they've been KO,d. It serves their stupid fans ryt.

No sooner these donkeys were handed the lig by Hans Vonk their fans started declaring that they gonna conquer Africa. They said so with so much conviction now this.

Gud luck Mabukubuku on ur mission to conquer Africa.

Now the whole of the world will know that PSL is weaker compared to Angolan league. Bucs u have disgraced SA. It is now clear why SA couls not qualify for AFCON. Segolela missed a sitter in Egypt nd the least said abt Jali the better.SA players r weak to play in Africa. I bet my last cent that this Libolo won't win against a team from Mvela.Bucs U won the league by fluk that's why U will never be named African team of the year like the glamour boys. U will just Wish. Ur Star means fokol nd u must remove it in your jersey. U r such a disgrace. Sis
