Orlando Pirates and Zamalek took their CAF Confederations Cup battle to Twitter this past weekend.

The two sides faced-off in the first leg of their Group B clash at the Mbombela Stadium on Saturday.

Zamalek registered a vital away victory courtesy of a 2-1 scoreline, and posted a Tweet as a sportsmanship gesture.

However, as can be expected on social media, the post was also seen as somewhat of a jab towards their hosts.

The Buccaneers refused to be outdone by their Egyptian counterparts, and they responded with a creative Tweet of their own to make matters square.

Who would you say won this Twitter battle between these two sides?
