Date: 17 September 2016
Venue: Cape Town Stadium
Bidvest Wits booked their spot in the MTN8 Final after securing a 3-0 aggregate win over Cape Town City on Saturday evening.
The Clever Boys came into the encounter with a healthy lead, after securing a 3-0 win in the first leg at the Bidvest Stadium.
Gavin Hunt's charges dominated from the onset, as the likes of Xola Mlambo and Thabang Monare pulled the strings from the middle of the park.
Monare wasted a golden chance to hand Wits the lead after 20 minutes, as the midfielder, un-marked, headed wide of the upright with only Shu-Aib Walters to beat.
Erick Tinkler opted to field 17-year-old Duncan Adonis in the midfield, along side Matt Sim and Lebogang Manyama, although they struggled to stamp their authority on the game.
Wits were in full control throughout the opening and they nearly broke the deadlock after 40 minutes when Rodgers picked out Mhango, who rattled the upright with a fine left-footed volley.
Despite Wits' dominance, the score remained goalless as the sides entered the halftime break at the Cape Town Stadium.
City continued to struggle as the second half got underway, Eric Tinkler opted for a double change in the 55th minute by introducing Sibusiso Masina and Mpho Matsi.
The introduction of Masina and Matsi certainly improved City, as they started seeing more of the ball as the half went on.
Bhongolethi Jayiya should have given City the lead after 77 minutes when he was left un-marked at the far post, but the forward fired straight at Darren Keet from close range.
Tinkler's charges created a couple openings in the closing stages but the likes of Masina and Moseamedi failed to take their chances.
Nonetheles, the score remained goalless at the full-time whistle, as Wits progress to the final having won the tie 3-0 on aggregate.

Cape Town City: Walters, Kobola, Gumede, Rode, Mokeke, Sim, Adonis, Manyama, Brown, Majoro, Moseamedi
