SuperSport United booked their spot in the CAF Confederation Cup quarterfinals, after they thumped CF Mounana 4-1 in their final Group D encounter.
SuperSport eventually broke the deadlock in the 15th minutes as Aubrey Modiba picked out Bradley Grobler, who headed home from six-yards out.
The lead was doubled after 27 minutes, as Grobler turned provider and played in Thabo Mnyamane, who drilled a low effort into the far corner from just inside the box.
SuperSport continued to dominate and grabbed a third goal in the 34th minute when Jeremy Brockie slotted into an empty net after some fine work by Reneilwe Letsholonyane.
The home side were then awarded a penalty just before the halftime break when Brockie was brought down. The New Zealand striker stepped up and slotted home the spot-kick, 4-0.
Mounana barely threatened Ronwen Williams' goal in the opening 45 minutes, as SuperSport went into the break with a comfortable lead.
However, the visitors pulled a goal back 10 minutes into the second half as Ellessah Mensah skipped past Clayton Daniels before calmly slotting home from close range, 4-1.
SuperSport opted for a double change on the hour mark, as Cole Alexander and Teboho Mokoena replaced Letsholonyane and Mnyamane.
The visitors started seeing a bit more of the ball after 70 minutes and managed to carve out a couple half chances, none of which troubled Williams.
Onismor Bhasera replaced Grobler for the final 10 minutes as SuperSport looked to see out the remaining stages.
Nevertheless, the score remained 4-1 at the full-time whistle, as the Nedbank Cup champions advanced to the knockout round as runners-up in Group D.
Here's how they lined up:
Starting XI: Williams, Kekana, Daniels, Mashamaite, Modiba, Letsholonyane (Alexander 60'), Furman Phala, Mnyamane (Mokoena 60'), Brockie, Grobler. (Bhasera 80').
