Orlando Pirates AC Leopards CAF Champions League

Posted: 14 September 2013 Time: 15:02

Orlando Pirates lost 1-0 to AC Leopards in the CAF Champions League in Congo on Saturday, leaving Group A wide open.

The Sea Robbers went down to Dimitri Bissik's 72nd minute strike in Dolisie.

The result sees Leopards join Bucs and Al Ahly at the summit, with the latter having a chance to move clear if they defeat Zamalek on Sunday.

In a goalless opening period, Pirates striker Lennox Bacela had a great chance to score but the ex-Bloemfontein Celtic man volleyed off target off a cross from Patrick Phungwayo.

Earlier, Daine Klate drilled a free-kick straight at Leopards goalkeeper Lawrence Ngome, while at the other end Bhebey Ndey shot wide, with Buccaneers keeper Senzo Meyiwa also making a smart stop to keep his team in it at one stage.

Leopards showed intent after the restart, and eventually got their reward when Bissik fired the ball past a back-tracking Meyiwa after the gloveman - who was making his 100th Bucs outing - failed to gather a corner.

Bafana Bafana winger Klate threatened with a late free-kick, which went narrowly wide, but the hosts held firm to claim the three points.

Orlando Pirates starting XI: Meyiwa, Lekgwathi, Mahamutsa, Phungwayo, Sangweni, Masalesa, Manyisa, Myeni, Klate, Mbuyane, Bacela.

Leopards starting XI: Ngomé, Nzamba, Moubhio, Miangounina, Bissiki, Lakolo, Gandzé, Niemba, Ntela, Mouzita, Ndey.

 Don like the way we playing at the moment...why not put the ball on the ground!!!

Sangweni was fit for the derby but didn't play because of Mahamutsa & Lekgwathi's form

my thoughts exactly, Excalibour.

the ball spends much of the time in the air. Even worse, these leopards have begun overcrowding our 18 area. You can also notice that they are desperately and deliberately looking for a penalty.  just hope our boys contain them. A draw would be pretty much relishable - the way things are turning out to be now.
