Local - Monday Morning Wrap

It was an interesting weekend of Absa Premiership action, but one to forget for the South African teams competing in CAF competitions.

The action started in Cape Town on Friday night where Clive Barker’s Mpumalanga Black Aces beat Ajax Cape Town 2-0, with both goals coming from Zimbabwean striker, Tendai Ndoro.

On Saturday afternoon, Platinum Stars revenged their Nedbank Cup defeat a week earlier, by beating Maritzburg United 2-1.

Orlando Pirates came out victorious in the ‘original Soweto derby’ with a Tlou Segolela goal being the only score in the 1-0 win against Moroka Swallows on Saturday evening.

Later on Saturday, Wits made some ground on second-placed Mamelodi Sundowns, with a 1-0 away win at bottom-of-the-table Golden Arrows, while two other relegation candidates, Polokwane City and Free State Stars, played to a 1-1 draw in Polokwane.

On Sunday, Sundowns beat neighbours AmaTuks 2-1 to join Kaizer Chiefs on 46 points, but remain second on goal-difference, and have played two games more than the Amakhosi.

In the other game on Sunday, Bloemfontein Celtic and AmaZulu played out a goalless draw.

Despite winning 2-0 on Saturday night, Kaizer Chiefs exited the CAF Champions League in the second round, losing 3-2 to the DRC’s AS Vita on aggregate. Chiefs will now enter the draw for the play-off round in the CAF Confederations Cup.

Also on Saturday night SuperSport United lost 4-1 at home to Etoile du Sahel of Tunisia, 5-1 on aggregate, to be knocked out of the CAF Confederations Cup.
