Pirates into CAFCC Group Stages

Pirates qualified for the group stages of the CAF Confederation Cup, after overcoming Jwaneng Galaxy of Botswana 4-0 over two legs.

Orlando Pirates (4) 1-0 (0) Jwaneng Galaxy

Pirates beat Galaxy 1-0 on Sunday evening to secure their path into the groups.Pirates had won the first leg 3-0 in Gaborone.

The first half at Orlando Stadium ended goalless as the visitors looked to find a way back into the game, and they came close at the half hour mark when a free kick hit the woodwork.

It was always going to be a mammoth task for Galaxy after the first leg defeat, and it became impossible when Linda Mntambo put Pirates up in the 55th minute, a composed finish from just inside the area.

The draw for the group stages will take place in Cairo tomorrow afternoon.
