Deon Hotto went through on goal from Dlamini's defence-splitting pass in the fourth minute, but fired a tame shot into the arms of goalkeeper Hamza Hamiani.
Soon after, Mehdi Oubilla unleashed a half-volley from the edge of the box that flashed wide for Berkane, but aside from that chance, Florent Ibenge's troops sat deep in their own half and absorbed the pressure.
Bandile Shandu almost made the Soweto giants' dominance count in the 33rd minute with a grass-cutter in the box that forced Hamiani to make an outstretched low save.
Pirates had a fantastic opportunity to break the deadlock from a set-piece on the edge of the box, but Hotto curled his strike over the crossbar, before shot-stopper Richard Ofori had to keep out a threatening strike from Youssef El Fahli at the other end.
After the break, the Buccaneers were on the offensive, as Hoto had another big chance to break the deadlock after breaking through in the six-yard box, but his strike was saved by Hamiani with a reflex save.
The second half was one-way traffic. On the hour mark, Thembinkosi Lorch had a chance to put them ahead after Hamiani was caught out of his area, but he dragged his shot into the path of the Moroccan shot-stopper.
The Orange Boys played with a sense of urgency in the closing stages, as the game opened up and was there for the taking, but both teams lacked the finishing touches in the final third.
