83' Must say, I've been quite disappointed with both sides in this fixture. It has not had that "finale feeling" and the football is underwhelming. I must add, nerves could well be the reason for that.

63' Berkane goalkeeper Hamiani down again receiving medical attention. But after a quick spray down on the arm, he is back up.
He has been Berkane's best player on the field tonight.

58' Berkane have set up somewhat of a brick wall defensively despite the Buccaneers having at least four legitimate chances at taking the lead. The Moroccans seem content in just holding on and ensuring that the match goes to penalty shootout.

HALF-TIME: Orlando Pirates 0-0 RS Berkane
The Buccaneers will have to feel disappointed with the first stanza as they should have at least been a goal up against the Moroccans.
The Oranges, meanwhile, will now know that they need to give more or else Pirates can win this match with ease in second-half as it is there for the taking.
All to play for now!

44' Two successive chances for Hotto, first from openly play after a through ball was played in nicely only for a Berkane defender to clear the danger.
Next from a free-kick but could not find the target even.
