MTN8 2018

Clinical Chiefs Advance To MTN8 Semi-Final

MTN8 Quarter-Final 

Result: Kaizer Chiefs 3-0 Free State Stars

Date: 11 August 2018

Venue: FNB Stadium

Dumisani Zuma, Leonardo Castro and Khama Billiat were among the goals as Kaizer Chiefs defeated Free State Stars 3-0 to advance to the MTN8 semi-finals.

Amakhosi were trying to build up from the back in the opening minutes and managed to circulate the ball well.

With 17 minutes gone, Daniel Cardoso should have opened the scoring for the Glamour Boys but he could not direct his strike on target with the net gaping.

Dumisani Zuma grabbed the lead for the hosts three minutes later with a beautiful side-footed finish inside the box after combining with Joseph Molangoane, 1-0.

Molangoane should have made it 2-0 for Amakhosi four minutes before the hour after going through inside the box, but Stars goalkeeper Badra Ali Sangare produced a good save to deny the winger.

Cardoso almost doubled the lead for the hosts three minutes before halftime but his glancing header sailed wide as Chiefs went into the break leading by one goal.

The Colombian striker doubled the lead for the Glamour Boys three minutes after the break with a fine chip over Sangare following a sumptuous through ball by Siphelele Ntshangase.

Chiefs were then dealt a blow after 53 minutes as Joseph Malongoane was stretchered off after suffering a suspected broken ankle.

Solinas’ troops were dominating possession towards the hour-mark and were threatening to run riot.

Ea Lla Koto, meanwhile,  were showing sense of urgency with 20 minutes remaining but could not swing momentum to their favor.

Amakhosi were playing with a lot of confidence with ten minutes remaining getting chance after chance on the break but were not clinical in the last third.

Khama Billiat made it 3-0 deep in stoppage time on a counter-attack with neat left-footed finish to round off an impressive win.
