Johannesburg - Orlando Pirates were held to a goalless draw by Esperance in the first leg of their CAF Champions League semifinal at Orlando Stadium on Saturday.

The result was that striker Lennox Bacela was left isolated, as neither of the wide men – Daine Klate and Sifiso Myeni – was really able to provide adequate support in attack.

Orlando Pirates 0

Esperance: Ben Cherifa, Ben Mansour, Derbali, Chemmam, Dhaouadi, Mouelhi, Ragued, Afful, Darragi (Msakni 66’), N’Djeng (Akaichi 79’), Belaili (Ben Akremi 90+3’)
