Orlando Pirates turned in a performance for the ages as they swept aside local rivals Kaizer Chiefs in the first-leg of their MTN8 battle.

Orlando Pirates forward Zakhele Lepasa, who scored alongside Vincent Pule and Thembinkosi Lorch, though has warned that the tie is not over.

“It’s really important that we scored three goals, but we must remind ourselves that there’s a second leg, and if we can score three goals then they can also score three – this is football,” said Lepasa.

“We just need to cement our place in the final in the next game, not defend and go out to score again, and the more we score the more difficult it is going to be for them.

“So, it was really, really important that we scored [from the chances created], but I think we could have gotten two more goals, but ja, that’s football.”
