South African top tier side Orlando Pirates shared points with Moroccan powerhouse Raja Casablanca in CAF Confederation Cup quarter final first leg on Sunday afternoon.
The Buccaneers were hosting the Moroccan outfit with the aim to take an advantage in this first leg tie but Josef Zinnbauer’s men failed to defend their early goal.
Vincent Pule was the one who put the Buccaneers ahead as he capitalises off some lax defence to roll one into the back of the net.
However, the Dstv Premiership side conceded the equalizer as Ben Malango gives hopes to the away side. The game ended in a stalemate pending the return leg in next Sunday to determine who goes in semifinal.
