Big Bullets will go into the return leg of the CAF Champions League first round with their backs to the wall after going down 4-0 to Al Hilal away in Sudan last night.
Unless a miracle happens in the return leg slated for Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre, the People’s Team might as well accept the harsh reality that their ambitious campaign might as well be trully over as they will have to win by a five goal margin to have a realistic chance of progressing in the continental showcase.
Al Hilal led 2-0 at interval through goals from Kharifa and Omar Said in under 10 minutes.
The hosts had the luxury of scoring two more goals in the second half through Kharifa and Hassan.
According to commentaries monitored on Matindi and Zodiak broadcasting stations, Bullets were completely out of sorts and an intimidating 35 000 capacity crowd worsened matters for Bullets.
BB technical director Billy Tewesa admitted that his team was horrible.
