Bullets Misfire As Lions Roar To Embarrass Them Home

It never rains but pours for Nyasa Big Bullets who have started their CAFChampions league assignment on a bad note having been thumped 2-nil by Tanzanian giants, Simba SC, the Lions, Saturday afternoon at the Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe

From the first whistle, the Lions seemed organised in-terms of consistence in ball possession and tactics. They roared on the 29th minute through Moses Phiri’s goal, who connected from a free kick.

Pressured, Bullets mentor Calisto Pasuwa had to make some changes by substituting Patrick Mwangulu and Lanjesi Nkhoma for Hassan Kajoke and MacPhalen M’gwira respectively.

The changes stabilised Pasuwa’s charges who started coming wave after wave in the visitors half but their efforts proved futile as the Lions were very alert in defence; putting the hosts in proper check.

The mouthwatering continental showpiece lived its billing in the second half as the two sides displayed stellar performances having made a number of substitutions.

But it was the visitors who were on top of the game in terms of their classic tactics and more ball possession.

John Bocco doubled the visitors’ lead on the 80th minute following a defensive relapse from the hosts; making Bullets go down by 2 goals to nil on regulation time.

This result gives Bullets a huge daunting task as they travel to Dar es Salaam next week for a return leg at Benjamin William Mkapa’s Stadium in Tanzania.

The winner between the two, will face either Red Arrows of Zambia or Premiro De Agotso of Angola.
