Pirates To Face Galaxy

Orlando Pirates are set to face Jwaneng Galaxy in the next round of the CAF Champions League.

The team from Botswana has emerged as the next hurdle for the Mighty Buccaneers in their quest for Group Stages qualification, after securing a hard-fought win over Vipers SC across two legs.

Galaxy squared off with Vipers in a tense showdown on Saturday evening.

While Vipers entered the match trailing 0-2 from their first encounter, they rallied impressively with a 2-0 lead. But, in a dramatic twist, the visitors secured a crucial away goal in the 89th minute.

Despite suffering a 2-1 setback, Galaxy advances to the subsequent round, aligning with their Southern African peers.

The last time these two sides met was in 2021 during the Preliminary stages of the CAF Confederation Cup. The Buccaneers won both legs (3-0 away and 1-0 home) to pave their way into the next round.

Dates for this fixture will be announced in due course.
