Bucs’ Top 5 Performers In CAF Matches

Orlando Pirates have enjoyed success in the 2013 CAF Champions League so far. Now at the semi-final stage, we preview Bucs’ top five performers.

Bucs walk into this monumental clash as slight underdogs, however, Bucs saw off some of the giants of the African game in the form of Al Ahly, Zamalek and AC Leopards.

Andile Jali leads up Bucs’ attacking statistics with 11.25 final third entries, which makes him a massive attacking threat, although the talented midfielder has also been instrumental in getting behind the ball and rolling up the sleeves for Pirates.

Attacking:

                          Matches Played:              Total Shots:           Final 3rd entries

1. Andile Jali               4                              0.25                         11.25

2. Ayanda Gcaba         1                               1                                7

5. Happy Jele              5                               1                                   10

Andile Jali has made the most amount of passes for Pirates, with his amount of successful passes showing just why Bucs have been so successful in the CAF Champions League this season.
