CAF Confederation Cup
Result: SuperSport United 2-1 Petro de Luanda (2-1 on agg)
Date: 16 March 2018
Venue:  Lucas Moripe Stadium
SuperSport United advanced to the next round of the CAF Confederation Cup after defeating Petro de Luanda 2-1 in the second leg of their first round tie.
The two sides came into the clash evenly poised after playing to a goalless draw in Angola two weeks ago.
Thabo Mnyamane was unlucky not to have got the opener for Matsatsantsa in the third minute with a strike inside the box that was brilliantly saved by Gerson.
Petro de Luanda’s shot-stopper made another excellent stop in the 16th minute to keep out Mnyamane's curling effort that looked destined to for the top corner.
Kaitano Tembo’s charges enjoyed most of the possession as the half continued and should have at least been one goal to the good but the visitors had the goalkeeper to thanks.
Mnyamane had another chance to get on the scoresheet five minutes before the break with a free-kick from the edge of the box, but his effort could not find the target.
As a result, the sides went into halftime break scoreless as the Tshwane side could not utilise their opportunities.
However, the Angolan side got the breakthrough four minutes into the second stanza after Ronwen Williams had initially made a brilliant save to deny Elio, who scored from the rebound.
Mnyamane’s bad luck for United continued in the 66th minute as he hit the woodwork following a good attacking move.
With 15 minutes remaining, Tembo withdrew veteran midfielder Reneilwe Letsholonyane for Luke Le Roux/
Mnyamane did finally get on the scoresheet in the 77th minute with a composed finished from 12-yards out, with Dean Furman picking up the assist.
Mnyamane then secured the win for the home side in the 83rd minute with a fine header into the bottom corner following a cross from Dean Furman.
Kaitano Tembo's charges have now advanced to the play-off round after winning the tie 2-1 on aggregate.
Here's how they lined up:
SuperSport: Williams, Kekana, Daniels, Gould, Bhasera, Furman, Letsholonyane, Webber, Modiba, Mnyamane, Smith.
Subs: Pieterse, Boateng, Mokoena, Mbule, Egwuekwe, Nhlapo, Le Roux.
