JOHANNESBURG – Black Leopards progressed to the last-16 of the Nedbank Cup following a 5 – 4 victory in the lottery of penalty-shoot-outs against Orlando Pirates at Thohoyandou Stadium on Saturday night.
Both sides had finished 1-1 after the added extra-time of the match, but either side couldn’t seal win during the match’s 120 minutes.
However, it was the boot of Joseph Mhlongo (as the last kicker) that ensured Lidoda Lidoda Dudabooked their spot in the last-16 of the competition.
It was relatively a slow start for either side as the ball possession was centralised in the middle of the park. The visitors, Pirates, were the team with the upper hand though as they were dominating the majority share of that possession – but they created minimal of chances to make them count.
The real chance of the game was upon the home side Leopards, but striker Muwape Musonda squandered that glance into the stands.
