BULAWAYO – Orlando Pirates and Platinum of Zimbabwe, played to a goalless draw in a CAF Champions League Group B match in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe on Saturday afternoon.
In the second half, the Buccaneers pushed hard for an all-important away goal, but it was not to be.
In the final moments of the match, the visitors thought they would receive a penalty kick after Vincent Pule was seemingly tackled from behind to the ground, but there was no reaction from the match official.
Zambian striker Justin Shonga nearly got Pirates off to the perfect second half start, but his right-footed effort was punched to safety by the home team's goalkeeper.
Platinum's best chances coming in the early part of the second half from long range shots by Farai Madhanga and Ali Sadiki, but nothing that the Pirates No 1 could not take care of.
