Johannesburg - Orlando Pirates cruised into the next round of the CAF Champions League with a convincing 4-0 away win over Djabal Club of the Comoros on Saturday afternoon.

The South African champions won the two-legged tie 9-0 on aggregate after a 5-0 win in the first leg in Soweto a fortnight ago.

Playing in uncomfortably hot conditions on an artificial pitch at the 3000-capacity Stade Said Mohamed Cheikh in Mitsamiouli, Roger De Sa’s side simply had too mucy class for their opponents.

Pirates started like a house on fire in the hot conditions and were 2-0 up within the first eight minutes thanks to goals from Thulasizwe Mbuyane and Ndumiso Mabena.

Mbuyane made way for Khetho Masuku at halftime, and just nine minutes into the second stanza the Buccaneers extended their lead to 3-0 through Zimbabwean striker Takesure Chinyama.

Nigerian midfielder Onyekachi Okonkwo made it 4-0 in the dying minutes to wrap up a convincing victory for the South African team.

Bucs will face either Zanaco FC (Zambia) or Mbabane Swallows (Swaziland) in the next round, with the two teams set to meet in Mbabane on Sunday. Zanaco are 3-2 up from the first leg.
