Zanaco booted out

South Africa’s champions Orlando Pirates are through to the second round of the African Champions League following a 2-1 victory over Zambia’s champions Zanaco on Saturday night.

The Buccaneers win through on a 3-1 aggregate result having won the away leg in Lusaka three weeks ago.

It was not a great a game in terms of quality, but Pirates were comfortable overall although they did survive some edgy moments in the second half.

But the main difference between the two teams was the two goals from Khethowakhe Masuku and Mpho Makola.

Masuku put Roger De Sa’s team ahead on 18 minutes with a low shot that beat the goalkeeper in the bottom corner.

That was the way it stayed until halftime, with Zanaco offering next to nothing going forward.

The Zambian champions were much better after the break through and were rewarded with a goal that was scored by Musonda Mwape, but created by namesake and ex-Pirates player Davis Mwape, whose cross was perfect for him to head home.

The home side really should have been back in front when Daine Klate was set free on goal, but even with time and space to pick his spot, the Bafana Bafana man shot wide.

On 72 minutes Mpho Makola curled a free-kick into the top corner of the net.

Bucs are set to meet the winner of the clash between DR Congo giants TP Mazembe and Mochudi Centre Chiefs from Botswana.
