Orlando Pirates have won their first round, 1st leg CAF Confederation Cup clash against GD Sagrada Esperanca in Angola.

The Buccaneers won 1-0 and will take an all-important away goal into the return leg on Wednesday, January 6.

The venue and kick-off time for that match is yet to be confirmed.

THEMBINKOSI LORCH BROKE THE DEADLOCK

After a scoreless first half, Pirates broke the deadlock thanks to a goal from Thembinkosi Lorch in the 75th minute at the Estadio dos Coqueiros.

The Soweto giants will certainly enjoy their festive period as they end the year with a 12-match unbeaten streak across all tournaments.

Pirates are fifth in league after seven matches – one fewer match than their rivals – with 13 points, five behind log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.

The Buccaneers will return to action on Saturday, January 2 in a mouth-watering clash against Sundowns at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria.

Kick-off is at 15:30.

Meanwhile, Sundowns themselves were impressive 2-0 winners earlier on Tuesday in their first round, 1st leg CAF Champions League clash in Botswana.
