Orlando Pirates CAF hopes kept alive as Happy Jele scored a stunner

Happy Jele did great work for Orlando Pirates at home as he scored a stunning goal for Pirates against Diables Noirs to win 1-0 in the second-leg of the second qualification round in the CAF Confederations Cup.

Orlando Pirates has eased the pressure of their shoulders, as they advanced in the CAF Confederations Cup after Happy Jele scored a goal at home to separate the winners from the losers. Orlando Pirates and Diables Noirs played the second round of the CAF Confederations Cup qualifications, and after a 0-0 draw in the first-leg hosted by Diables Noirs the pressure was on both clubs to perform in the second-leg to progress in the CAF Confederations Cup.

The second-leg fixture was hosted by Orlando Pirates and the home side did a remarkable job as they scored the only goal in the match to win 1-0 at full-time. Orlando Pirates player Happy Jele scored an early 17th minute goal which kept the club's hopes alive in the CAF Confederations Cup. Happy Jele was the only player to find the back of the net, as Diables Noirs could not challenge Pirates good enough for a potential away goal which would have seen them progress in the CAF Confederations Cup.

Orlando Pirates won the fixture 1-0 at full-time and progressed to the next phase in the tournament. Orlando Pirates made it to the knockout stages in the tournament last season and stands a pretty good chance to do it again and possibly make it even further depending on how they perform in the group stages and beyond.

Orlando Pirates scored only one goal to advance but the one goal was more than enough to keep their hopes alive as their journey continues. Orlando Pirates now joins Marumo Gallants in the next phase of the tournament who is the other club representing South Africa in the CAF Confederations Cup.
