Castro Nets Winner On Chiefs Debut

Absa Premiership Report: Baroka v Kaizer Chiefs 21 January 2018

Absa Premiership 

Result: Baroka 1-2 Kaizer Chiefs

Date: 21 January 2018

Venue: Peter Mokaba Stadium

Leonardo Castro came off the bench to score the winning goal on debut, as ten-man Kaizer Chiefs defeated Baroka FC 2-1.
 
 
Gustavo Paez could have opened the scoring in the ninth minute, but Olaleng Shaku cleared his strike off the line.
 
Robin Ngalande almost sent the hosts ahead two minutes later, with a powerful left-footed strike from the edge of the box, but Itumeleng Khune was at full-stretch to make the save.
 
In the 29th minute, Shaku should have found the back of the net with a free-header inside the box, but he could not find the target.
 
Lucky Nguzana grabbed the lead for Bakgaga in the 31st minute with a finish from close range, after Talent Chawapiwa's strike from outside the box came off the upright.
 
Ryan Moon was unlucky not to find the equaliser six minutes before halftime, with a gliding header from inside the box, that sailed narrowly wide following a good cross from George Maluleka.
 
That proved to be the final piece of action in the half, as Baroka went into the break one goal up.
 
Ryan Moon equalised for Steve Komphela's charges a minute into the second half with a looping header at the near post, that found the far bottom corner, after a good cross from Siphiwe Tshabalala, 1-1.
 
Kgoloko Thobejane made his first change 10 minutes into the second half by bringing on Mpho Kgaswane, in place of Richard Matloga, while he also brought in Gift Motupa for Ngalande minutes later.
 
Komphela made his first alteration on the hour-mark, with Siphelele Ntshangase coming on for Tshabalala while Dumisani Zuma came on for Paez minutes after.
 
Castro, meanwhile, came on for his Chiefs debut 20 minutes from time in place of goalscorer Moon.
 
Amakhosi were reduced to 10 man in the 73rd minute, after Joseph Molangoane was shown a straight red-card for using an elbow on Khutso Mohwatseleng in an off the ball incident.
 
Castro found the winner seven minutes from time, with a superb left-footed strike that found the top corner, 1-2.
 
Bakgaga threw numbers forward for the equaliser in the closing minutes, but it was not to be as the visitors stayed resolute to claim all the three points.
 

Here's how they lined up:

Baroka: 16. Vries, 2. Kgoetyane, 24. Banda, 6. Shaku, 29. Mohwatseleng, 14. Mosele, 8. Mdantsane, 7. Chawapiwa, 11. Matloga (Kgaswane 55'), 17. Ngalande (Motupa 57'), 9. Nguzana.

Chiefs: 16. Khune, 4. Cardoso, 20. Hadebe, 3. Mathoho, 22. Zulu, 23. Molangoane, 13. Katsande, 12. Maluleka, 14. Tshabalala (Ntshangase 59'), 29. Moon (Castro 69'), 9. Páez (Zuma 63').

@Mail4lyf : Since the arrival of Steve how many trophies did you win? You only won MACUFE. Three seasons CUPLESS. Don't fool yourself, you only beat Downs through Downs mercy. This coming Saturday YOUR ZEBRISH MOUTH WILL BE shut-up for good.

I blame Baroka defenders they did not mark Castro and he was alone when he kicked that ball & I guarantee you it won't happen against Sundowns, we will close him down and Brooke will kill Cowne once again I tell you. These weak Baroka defenders are making cows to shine.
