Orlando Pirates fans and officials will probably retell this story in the decades to come. Simba SC have reportedly been accused of using muti, or juju, or black magic, whatever one chooses to call it.

While Pirates players warmed-up on the one side, the visitors formed a huddle in the center circle before a trail of smoke emerged out of it.
Meanwhile, Pirates’ long-serving media officer Thandi Merafe has gone on social media to claim that Simba had literally burned juju.
“Orlando Pirates through to the Semi-Final @SimbaSCTanzania you can burn juju all you want but not in our HOUSE,” Merafe said.
The Soweto giants won 4-3 on penalties before confirming a semi-final meeting against Libyan giants Al Ahly Tripoli.
