Match Results: FC Platinum vs Orlando Pirates Total-Caf Champions League Group Stage

FC Platinum (ZW) 0 - 0 Orlando Pirates (SA)

The two teams remain bottom of the CL's Group B because of the goaless draw as ES Tunis & Horoya drew 1 - 1. FC Platinum & Orlando Pirates each get 1 point from the leg.

FC Platinum failed to capitilise on the loads of goal-scoring chances they created, and in the end had to share a point each with the South African side, Orlando Pirates.

Before the match, Orlando Pirates were said to be the bigger team as they have more appearances in the Champions League than FC Platinum who are only in their second season playing in a top flight league, the Zimbabwe Premier Soccer League.

However, in the match Orlando Pirates only saw a few of their chances nearly going in the back of FC Platinum's net, being denied by FC Platinum's goalkeeper, but the Pirates played defensively in most part of the match showing at least a draw was an adequate result in their match plan.

In a despised incident a missile was thrown into the Barbourfields Stadium pitch nearly at the end of the match '90+ mins' from the side nicknamed by Highlander's fans, the 'Soweto-End'. The incident didn't have any much effect to the progress of the match, only that the referee took a minute or so chatting with his other officials about the incident & resumed play.

FC Platinum coach, Norman Mapeza, welcomed the result, and cried of missed chances that would have landed his team their first ever win of the Total Caf Champions League Group Stages.
