Orlando Pirates beat Zamalek in CAF Champions League

Posted: 17 August 2013 Time: 22:08

Orlando Pirates were on top of their game as they hammered Zamalek 4-1 on Saturday night at Orlando Stadium in a CAF Champions League clash.

Earlier in the day, Al Ahly got back on track with a 1-0 win away at AC Leopards but Pirates had the last laugh as they went top of the log in the end.

Bucs showed their intentions as early as the eighth minute after Andile Jali was fouled on the far right. Daine Klate took the free kick but Lennox Bacela misdirected his header for Zamalek’s goal kick.

Bucs suffered a blow in the 19th minute when Jali was forced off due to a groin injury, with Lehlohonolo Masalesa taking over in the heart of midfield.

Pirates took the lead in the 27th minute when Klate played a pass to Bacela, who used his power to shrug off a Zamalek defender and fired home from close range.

However, Bucs’ celebration was short-lived.

Mahmoud Fadlalla, otherwise known as Shikabala, equalised for the Egyptians after poor defending from Pirates’ defenders.

The two sides went to the break 1-1.

As the score reflects, Zamalek were no match for the 1995 African Champions in the second stanza.

In the 52nd minute, Bacela turned provider as he played a great pass to Segolela, who needed no second invitations as he sent it beyond the keeper’s right hand to give Bucs the lead.

The Mighty Buccaneers could have gone further ahead in the 70th minute. Segolela took on the Zamalek defenders and shot with his left and while the goalkeeper made a save, he couldn’t hold on to the ball and Bacela pounced, but the striker was adjudged to have been in an offside position when Sox took the initial shot.

However, there was no denying Bucs a third in the 74th minute when Klate crossed for Sifiso Myeni, who showed composure to beat the defender and fire home.

Klate fired the final nail in the coffin in the 82nd minute after a cross from Segolela.

Pirates XI: Meyiwa - Jele, Matlaba, Mahamutsa, Lekgwathi, Jali (Masalesa 19th), Segolela (Molongoane 88th), Manyisa, Bacela (Mabena 83rd), Myeni, Klate.

Zamalek XI: Ebrahim - Aboelamaym (Hassan 57th), Ahmed, Fadlalla, Abouezeid, Abdelmalak, Moselhy, Morsy (Emam 65th), Gaber (Shenawy 71st), Tolba, Rehim.
