AC Leopards - Orlando Pirates

AC Léopards stunned  in Congo to deny the Group A leaders automatic qualification to the Champions League semi-finals after losing 1-0 on Saturday.

The South African side went down thanks to a wonderful volley scored by Dimitri Bissiki in the 72nd minute.

In a goalless first-half, Pirates striker Lennox Bacela had a great chance to score but the striker volleyed off target off a cross from Patrick Phungwayo.

Moments before, Daine Klate shot a free-kick straight at Leopards goalkeeper Lawrence Ngome, while at the other end AC Léopards captain Bhebey Ndey shot wide, with Buccaneers goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa also making a fine save to keep his team in it at one stage.

Léopards showed their intentions after the break and got their reward when Dimitri Bissiki fired a fantastic volley past the newly centurion Senzo Meyiwa.

Orlando Pirates winger Klate threatened AC Léopards with a last free-kick,which went wide, but the Congolese side stood firm to claim the three points and revive their hopes of reaching 2013 semi-finals.

The result sees the giant killers join Orlando Pirates and Al-Ahly on 7 points, with the Red Devils having a chance to move clear if they defeat Zamalek – who are on 4 points – tomorrow.
