CAF Confederation Cup Report: SuperSport United v TP Mazembe 20 June 2017

CAF Confederation Cup

Result: SuperSport United 0-0 TP Mazembe

Date: 20 June 2017

Venue: Lucas Moripe Stadium

SuperSport United managed to clinch a point against the CAF Confederation Cup champions, TP Mazembe after the two sides played out a 0-0 draw at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.

These two sides met two weeks ago, with SuperSport coming from behind to clinch a 2-2 draw.

The Congolese outfit got off to the better start just as they did on match day three, as they enjoyed a lot of the possession in the opening exchanges.

Mazembe continued to dominate as the opening stanza went on, but they failed carve out any clear-cut chances in the opening 25 minutes.

SuperSport, on the other hand, failed to offer much going forward and lacked creativity in the final third.

That proved to be the trend for the rest of half, as the score remained goalless at the halftime break.

Stuart Baxter introduced Jeremy Brockie at the start of the second half, with the injured Onismor Bhasera making way.

The home side looked little livelier upon resumption of the second half, but they were finding it tough to carve out clear-cut openings.

With both sides struggling to get the break through, SuperSport introduced Kingston Nkhatha, while Mazembe brought on Adam Traore after 70 minutes.

Both sides pushed for a winning goal in the closing stages, although SuperSport looked the more likely to break the deadlock in the closing stages.

However, neither side could find the all important goal and were forced to share the spoils just as they did on match day three in Congo.

Here's how they lined up:

SuperSport: Williams, Kekana, Gould, Daniels, Bhasera (Brockie 46'), Letsholonyane, Mokoena, Modiba, Phala, Mnyamane, Grobler (Nkhatha 69').

Cowditor Xulu Snr has something to say to you, can you please listen what is he saying. I think he something like " There are teams who want him(Xulu Jnr). I'm talking about Ajax Cape Town, Sundowns, Pirates.. etc". I don't want that kid near the Yellow Nation. Pirates can have him because Jele and Gcaba are getting old.

Fans of a team that ended 11th position on the log are underestimating a team that ended on the 5th position on the log, which also the defending champions of the NudeBank. The same team that beat them 6-1. Ncincincinci football will humble you.

Baxter is allowed to be on the SuperSport bench until the final game. Did you know there was a coach in Africa who coached the National Team and a local football club at the sametime? Football will humble you.
