CAF Confederation Cup Report: Cape Town City v Young Buffaloes 20 February 2018

CAF Confederation Cup
 
Result: Cape Town City 1-0 Young Buffaloes (City won 2-0 on agg.)
 
Date: 20 February 2018
 
Venue: Athlone Stadium
 
Cape Town City advanced to the first round of the CAF Confederation Cup after defeating Swaziland's Young Buffaloes 2-0 on aggregate.
 
Benni McCarthy’s charges came into the clash with a slight advantage, having won the first leg 1-0 thanks to Nana Akosah-Bempah's late strike.
 
City started to build their momentum after a quarter of the match with their main threat coming on set-plays, searching for the aerial threat posed by Judas Moseamedi upfront.
 
Taariq Fielies was unlucky not put City ahead in the 38th minute as his header narrowly sailed over the crossbar from close range.
 
There was nothing separating the two sides going into the half-time break, but City were still holding the advantage from the first leg.
 
New City recruit Surprise Ralani eventually broke the deadlock for the hosts three minutes before the hour mark, 1-0.
 
McCarthy then withdrew striker Moseamedi 20 minutes before time and introduced Akosah-Bempah and he could have made it 2-0 five minutes after coming on, but the striker missed a golden chance from close range.
 
The Citizens managed to hold on for the remaining stages of the encounter, though, to claim a 1-0 win on the night and 2-0 win on aggregate.
 
McCarthy's charges will face the winner of the clash between Costa do Sol and Jwaneng Galaxy.
 
Here's how they lined up:
 
City: 1. Walters, 4. Kobola, 27. Gumede, 12, Fielies, 6. Seedat, 16. Johannes, 28. Kewuti, 29. Roberts, 21. Ralani (Nodada 69'), 24. Masina (Martin 46'), 20. Moseamedi (Akosah-Bempah 69').
 
Subs: 15. Stephens, 5. Edmilson, 2. Mkhize, 26. Nodada, 30. Martin, 7. Lakay, 14. Nana.
 
Buffaloes: 27. Gwebu, 3. Dlamini, 5. Gamedze, 6. Tsabedze, 9. Mtseftwa, 15. S. Mkhwanazi, 11. Mazibuko, 20. Mkhonta, 17. Mazibuko, 29. Maseko, 30. Ngwenya.
