SuperSport Land As CAF Adventure Begins Again
SuperSport United Have Landed In Angola Ahead Of Their CAF Confederation Cup Game
SuperSport United have landed in Angola as their 2018 CAF Confederation Cup campaign gets underway after coming so close to winning the competition last year.
Matsatsantsa face Petro de Luanda tomorrow in the first round of the CCC, jetting into the Angolan capital on Monday ahead of the clash.
The game will be the club’s first on the continent since Eric Tinkler – who guided them to the final last year – resigned his post last week, and they will be seeking to get a good result ahead of the second leg in Pretoria later this month.
Interim head coach, Kaitano Tembo, is the man that has taken over from Tinkler until the end of the season, and after the 0-0 draw with Maritzburg United on Saturday he is going in search of his first win.
SuperSport have won just three games in all competitions since losing the CCC final to TP Mazembe back in November, and the club will no doubt be hoping for a change in fortunes as they delve back into continental football once again.
Can SuperSport get to the final again?
