Pirates play CAF game in PE

The game between Pirates and Libolo is scheduled for the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on February 19.   Bucs crashed out of the 2010 Champions League at the same venue against Gaborone United of Botswana.   Bucs led 2-0 against United courtesy of goals by Katlego Mashego and Bennett Chenene but let in two goals in the last 6 minutes that gave their opponents a ticket to the next round on the away goals rule.   Pirates remain only club in South Africa to win the Champions League and club chairman Irvin Khoza has give the coach Julio Leal a mandate to deliver the trophy and add another star on Bucs’ emblem this year.   Meanwhile Black Leopards have also confirmed that their CAF Confederation Cup game against Motor Action of Zimbabwe will be played at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on February 18.   Leopards qualified for the CAF tournament after playing in the Nedbank Cup Final last season.
