Bucs desperately needed a victory to go through to the knockout stages but never looked like taking the initiative away from home.
The best social media Tweet for Pirates was a video showcasing a Bucs fan named Mohommed in Guinea. You can watch the video filmed by Pirates media officer Thandi Merafe below.
Then one can read all the post match reactions from the fans who were pointing out what went wrong for Pirates.
We also include reactions from Sundowns supporters, who were not very upset with the defeat. In fact they expressed their pride to represent South Africa in the last eight.
72 mins: Goal: Mandela has been threatening & eventually squeezes a goal home after rounding his man & firing at goal. The ball clips Sandilands on its way over the line. 2-0 to Horoya #CAFCL— Orlando Pirates FC (@orlandopirates) March 16, 2019
We never replaced LEKGWATHI ,JALI , SANGWENI , KLATE and MEYIWA people who will fight for Orlando pirates— Mzwandile Mazaleni (@MzwandileMazal2) March 16, 2019
I'm wearing my Orlando pirates Jersey in the kitchen. I'm struggling to lift any cup...— Khuthie Munyai (@khuthadzomunyai) March 16, 2019
This team was not even strong... It was easily beatable. They ddnt even threaten us too much and yet we lost against them. Wish khosa can loan me this team for a season to coach it, I am sure I can do much better for free— RomanRabz (@RomanRabz) March 16, 2019
Our Centre Defence (Jele & Ndengane) is too slow n useless, similarly to our midfield (Nyatama & Mlambo) and our over crowded coaching bench!— Siphamandla Magubane (@SiphaM10) March 16, 2019
I 1-2 say to all Orlando Pirates fans, welcome back to planet earth 😂😂😂😂— Kokwele M. Phillix 🇿🇦 (@Matome_Kay) March 16, 2019
This Horoya F.C or Horror F.C whatever you call it is such an ordinary team. I don't understand the fuss and— Rudzani Mukhwantheli (@Rudzani4VV) March 16, 2019
They can fit in well at the PSL, very poor but today they played a poorer Orlando Pirates.
You are better than what you gave us today Mabuccaneer!#CAFCL
