1995 CAF Champions League winners Orlando Pirates were surprisingly out-classed by little known Recreativo Libolo of Angola who beat 3-1 at their favourite hunting ground, Orlando Stadium on Sunday Afternoon.
It must have been a black Sunday for the South African Champions, who have,in the past few months displayed the kind of flair and spirit that saw them become the first COSAFA region club to win the title in 1995.
Elsewhere, highly rated Zimbabwean rich club FC Platinum demonstrated why they are billed as the dark horses in the Champions League when they thumped Swaziland's Green Mamba 4-2 away in Swaziland.
Power Dynamos of Zambia appear to be the awakening giants of the Chammpions League, and managed 5-1 victory away from home at little knowl Japan Actuel of Madagascar on Sunday.
