FC Platinum Draw 0-0 Against AS Otoho To Reach CAF Champions League Group Stage

Zimbabwean Champions FC Platinum defied pessimists and are through to the Group Stage of the Total CAF Champions League after holding Congolese outfit AS Otoho D’yo to a goalless draw at Mandava Stadium in Zvishavane on Saturday. They go through on the away goals rule after they held their opponents to a 1-1 stalemate away last Sunday.

FC Platinum only needed a 0-0 draw which hey managed to achieve with the minimum of fuss. As a result, they now join Dynamos, Caps United and the now-defunct Monomotapa to play in the mini-league of the African Safari.

FC Platinum coach Norman Mapeza was happy on the historic achievement. He said

It is a massive achievement for me as a coach and the entire FC Platinum family, we really worked hard for this and no one gave us a chance, I am just short of words, with God everything is possible.

I think we defended very well today, there was a time I thought the legs were gone but they kept on pushing credit to the boys, they worked so hard today.
