Total-Caf Champions League News: FC Platinum thumped by Horoya AC at home

FC Platinum - 0 Horoya AC - 1

FC Platinum are now at the bottom of Group B of the Total- Caf Champions League 2018/19 after the Zvishane based side were beaten today in a match played this afternoon at their competition's  homeground, Barbourfields Stadium in Bulawayo. FC Platinum were on the receiving side of a 51th minute penalty scored by Horoya's G. Assoko, and failed to overturn the result throughout the rest of the match. Horoya AC dominated much of the match despite being the away team, managing 14 shots at goal, with 4 on target, against FC Platinum's 9, with only 2 on target, overall match ball possession, Horoya 51, and FC Platinum 49, Fouls, Horoya 14, and FC Platinum 18. However, the teams were matched on the number of corner Kicks at 5 - 5.

FC Platinum coach, Norman Mapeza had gone into the match expecting to pick up a win in order to remain relevant in the bid for qualification to the last 8 of Africa's Champions League, the loss means Zimbabwe's  FC Platinum are the only team in the group at the stage yet to win a match, having lost against Esperance (Tunisia) and drawn 0 - 0 against Orlando Pirates (South Africa) in their last two matches in the group. Hopes for FC Platinum to make it to the the last 8 of the Total-Caf Champions League 2018/19 edition are now very slim, given their 'underdog' status in the group, having only three matches left to play out of six yet with only 1 point from a draw, and also considering that two of the three remaing matches will be played away against tough sides, and one the three at home with a heated Esperance who are current holders of the Total Caf Champions League Trophy from 2018.

Group B stands as follows:

Orlando Pirates 4
Es Tunis 4
Horoya AC 4
FC Platinum 1

Next match for FC Platinum in Total-Caf Champions League will also be against Horoya AC away in Guinea
