Kaizer Chiefs Crowned Black Label Champions

Kaizer Chiefs were crowned 2021 Carling Black Label Cup winners after beating rivals Orlando Pirates 4-3 in a penalty shootout at the Orlando Stadium on Sunday.

The runners up of CAF Champions league off to a good start and dominated proceedings in the opening exchanges, while the Buccaneers were trying to find their rhythm in the match.

Fortune Makaringe had the first real chance of the game on the half-hour mark when he fired his effort into the side-netting from close range after receiving a pass from Thembinkosi Lorch.

 

Itumeleng Khune managed to keep the score level in the closing stages of the first half when he produced a good save to deal with Lorch’s thunderous strike from just outside the box.

Neither side were able to find the opening goal in the first half as the game went into the break locked at 0-0.

Both sides opted to make substitutions early in the second half has Amakhosi brought on Kgaogelo Sekgota for Lebohang Lesako, while the Buccaneers replaced Thabang Monare for Siphesihle Ndlovu.

Chiefs nearly opened the scoring in the 55th minute but Ofori made a crucial stop to keep the ball out of danger at the near post.
