In Windhoek, last season semi-finalist Tura Magic lost 3-1 on penalties to Orlando Pirates after drawing 1-1 in open play football at the Sam Nujoma Stadium on Saturday.
Speaking to the media after the game, Tura Magic coach Timo Tjongarero, said his team did not capitalise on their chances and it cost them a spot in the round of 16 of the competition.
“We were better in the first half and we could have scored more than five goals but the team failed to do that and I don’t know if the is a goal scoring institution that one should send this players to, because you cannot miss three penalties and a lot of one-on-one opportunities throughout the first half,” said Tjongarero.
He added that his team will now prepare for their league tie next week against the same opponents Orlando Pirates.
Pirates coach Lucky Kakuva said he was pleased with his team's win against Tura Magic and he is looking forward to the next round of the competition.
“Tura Magic was a better side then us in the first half, but in the second half we decided to give it our all as we had nothing to lose and we are now looking forward to the next round of the competition as we also want to win silverware this season,” stated Kakuva.
