CAF Confederation Cup
 
Result: MC Alger 2-0 Platinum Stars
 
Date: 30 June 2017
 
Venue: Stade du 5 Juillet 1962
 
Platinum Stars' hopes of progressing to the knockout stages of the CAF Confederations Cup were ended, after they lost 2-0 to MC Alger on Friday evening.
 
Alger were awarded a penalty after 10 minutes when Zakarya Mansouri was adjudged to have been brought down. Abderrahane Hachoud stepped up and converted the spot-kick, 1-0.
 
After a quiet spell in the half, the hosts nearly doubled their in the 30th minute but Hichem Nekkache's attempted lob sailed inches wide of the upright.
 
Stars, meanwhile, started enjoying more of the possession after 35 minutes but they were finding it tough to carve out a chances in the 18-yard area.
 
However, Dikwena should have leveled matters just before the halftime break, as Bongi Ntuli out-muscled two defenders but was unable to beat Fawzi Chaouchi from 12-yards out.
 
The hosts continued to threaten after the break and went close through Sid Aouadj and Nekkache in the opening 10 minutes.
 
Dikwena shaded the possession statistics in the second stanza, but they failed to pose a threat to home side's defence, with Ntuli cutting a frustrated figure at times.
 
With time running out, Willem Jackson opted to withdraw Robert Ng'ambi for Benson Shilonhgo in the 76th minute as they pushed for an equaliser.
 
Stars nearly leveled matters in the first minute of stoppage time, but Chaouchi produced a fine finger-tip save to top a potential own goal.
 
However, Alger sealed the win a minute later as Nekkache found the back of the net with a superb volley from 20-yards out that left Chibwe with no chance.
 
Here's how they lined up:
 
Stars: Chibwe, Mnguni, Mwedihanga, Mlilo, Mpeta, Baloyi, Mere, Ng'ambi (Shilongo 76'), Senne, Mabena, Ntuli.

When is this team going to be sold? Phokeng community does not give support to the team and Royal Bafokeng Stadium is always empty when the team plays there. Mr Lesufi and Swallows Executives should consider buying this team status if it goes on sale, it is a FACT - Phokeng does not have SOCCER Loving PEOPLE.

They played good football in that game and were attacking. They were just unlucky.
