South African champions Orlando Pirates have advanced to the group stage of the Orange CAF Champions League for the first time since 2006.

The Buccaneers, winners of the premier continental club championship in 1995 achieved the feat at the expense of TP Mazembe of DR Congo, after losing by a lone goal to the latter in their second leg 1/8th round clash on Sunday in Lubumbashi.

The South Africans advanced 3-2 on aggregate, after a 3-1 win in the first held in Johannesburg a fortnight ago. Mazembe had to score at least two unanswered goals but could only manage one, courtesy Kiritsho Kasusula on 79 minutes. The South Africans played well despite suffering a numerical disadvantage after captain Lucky Lekgwathi was sent off in the first half.

This is the first time since 2008 that Mazembe has failed to qualify for the mini-league stage of the competition. The Congolese have emerged as one of the dominant forces in the CAF Champions League, having won the title back-to-back, 2009 and 2010; and reached the semi finals at every edition during the last four years.
