The two club’s will be aiming to join Bidvest Wits and Cape Town City in the final four, with Mamelodi Sundowns and Maritzburg United to round off the weekend’s round of fixtures on Sunday.

Match commentary (As It Happened):

All times CAT

90+5′ Full-Time: Kaizer Chiefs 0-1 SuperSport United (Jeremy Brockie 6′)

88′ Aubrey Modiba the next to go into the referee’s book.

86′ Into the final few minutes of regulation time we go. SuperSport happy to sit back and absorb constant Chiefs pressure, will they be able to hold on?

82′ Ramahlwe Mphahlele makes way for Bhongolwethu Jayiya – the former Cape Town City man on to make his debut.

80′ Clayton Daniels makes way for former Kaizer Chiefs captain Tefu Mashamaite

75′ WOODWORK! For the third time in the match, Kaizer Chiefs have seen the ball rattle the frame of the goal with Hendrick Ekstein’s shot hitting the crossbar.

73′ Bernard Parker OUT, Joseph Malongoane IN for Kaizer Chiefs.

68′ Dove Wome makes way for Siyabonga Nhlapo

67′ Yellow card for Katsande who is still fuming from that challenge by Dean Furman.

61′ Yellow card for Dean Furman following a challenge on Willard Katsande

60′ Hour played at the Moses Mabhida Stadium – SuperSport United still holding onto a narrow lead as things start to get heated between the two sides.

55′ POST! Bernard Parker’s header bounces off the woodwork before Grant Kekana clears off the line. All happening.

52′ Lucky escape for Itumeleng Khune who made a hash of his attempted clearance, Erick Mathoho gets back well to clear Bradley Grobler’s shot from bouncing into the back of the net.

50′ Good start to the half by the visitors – as in the first – they are the one’s making early inroads.

46′ Second half is underway in Durban, SuperSport hold a slender lead thanks to Jeremy Brockie.

46′ Cole Alexander makes way for Thuso Phala.

45+4′ Half-Time: Kaizer Chiefs 0-1 SuperSport United

43′ Glamour Boys all over their opponents as we enter the final few minutes of the first-half; just can’t find that killer blow (deja vu really).

35′ SAVE! Excellent stop by Ronwen Williams to keep our Bernard Parker’s bullet from the edge of the area. Amakhosi on top, but behind.

33′ Ronwen Williams escapes from what would have been an embarrassing moment. Amakhosi closing down their opponents in frantic fashion as they look for the equaliser.

29′ Bradley Grobler goes into the referee’s book. Real strikers challenge by the SuperSport United man who tracked back well into his own half. Matsatsantsa working hard.

23′ POST! Siphiwe Tshabalala’s deflected effort canon’s off the woodwork. Best chance of the match for the Amakhosi.

19′ Bernard Parker gets in behind the SuperSport United defence and tries to pick out Gustavo Paez, but his cross goes out of play.

14′ Chiefs, though, have to be very wary of the counter-attack. Ronwen Williams quick to release the ball to the SuperSport attackers on transition.

12′ Kaizer Chiefs looking for a way back into the clash, but SuperSport survive a spell of Amakhosi pressure.

6′ GOAL! Jeremy Brockie! SuperSport United hit the front in Durban following a quick counter-attack, Grobler with a delightful pass, but Brockie still had a lot to do. He cuts in field and fires past Khune! Eric Tinkler’s impact immediately evident.

3′ Good turnout in Durban at a Stadium where both teams have tasted recent cup success. Chiefs have a lot of fans in KZN.

1′ Kick-off in Durban!

Kaizer Chiefs: Khune; Mphahlele, Gordinho, Mathoho, Masilela – Maluleka, Katsande, Ekstein, Tshabalala – Parker, Paez

2017 CAF CL: Coton Sport 0-1 Zanaco – As it happened – 2017 CAF Champions League


by
Graeme Jackson

Wednesday Jun 21, 2017. 17:47


Good afternoon and welcome to our coverage of the 2017 CAF Champions League Group D clash between Coton Sport and Zanaco from the Roumde Adjia Stadium in Garoua, on Wednesday 21 June 2017.

Commentary:

All times CAT

90+4′ – Full time – It ends 1-0 to Zanaco, who have taken a massive stride toward the quarterfinals with this victory! It’s tough on Coton Sport, who probably deserved more from the match, but that’s football for you.

90+1′ – GOAL! Coton Sport 0-1 Zanaco – Zanaco on the counter attack, Sakala with a chance… this time he buries it with a shot across the face of goal!

88′ – Clear chance for Sakala, but Omossola makes a superb save and then gets up to keep out the rebound from Kwame!

85′ – Zanaco with a rare chance (in recent minutes) to test Coton’s defence as Bwenbya goes for goal from a free kick, but once again his effort is poor.

83′ – Another confident claim from Nsabata, with Coton now throwing long balls into the Zanaco box at will.

80′ – Coton’s final change sees Ngah Wanja make way for Harouna Mahamat.

78′ – Coton Sport skipper Ewonde goes into the book after chopping down Sakala.

75′ – Consecutive corners for Coton, who very much look the likelier scorers now.

73′ – Coton with a free kick just to the right of the penalty area. Ngah Wanja whips in the cross, but Nsabata makes a confident catch.

71′ – Less than 20 minutes to play in this match, will we see a goal before full time?

68′ – Kombous heads a loose ball just wide of the mark, before Coton make another change by introducing Moise Sakava Sangola in place of Batai.

67′ – Another change for the visitors sees Attram Kwame replace Nyaende, with Zanaco looking to get some more energy in attack.

65′ – Coton’s first change sees Mayakmon make way for Kamilou Daouda.

64′ – Much better play from Coton, who have found a new confidence in the last few minutes, though their fans groan loudly when Bongyang punts an aimless ball forward to give away possession.

61′ – Mvondo shoots for goal direct from a long-range free kick, but it’s easy pickings for Nsabata.

58′ – Coton speed away on the counter through Ngah Wanja, but his attempt to stab a shot with the outside of his right foot is blocked by Nsabata!

57′ – It’s been all Zanaco in the second half, the hosts have hardly had a touch. But can the Zambians find a way through this Coton Sport defence?

53′ – Sakala with a great chance at close range, but Omossola makes a sharp save at his near post to keep the scores level!

50′ – Zanaco skipper Tembo is booked for a nasty-looking collision in the middle of the park.

48′ – Zanaco make their first change as Boyd Musonda replaces Mpiana.

47′ – Mbewe with a half chance from a tight angle, but he skews his shot high and wide.

46′ – Back underway in the second half, no changes from either team at the break.

45’+2 – Half time – Goalless at the break. Zanaco have looked the better team, but Coton have grown in confidence and had the best chance to open the scoring, with Romaric missing a great opportunity 21 minutes in.

45′ – Coton with their first corner kick of the match, but Bongyang can’t quite get a clean header on the ball.

43′ – Bwenbya with a truly awful effort at a long range free kick which nearly travels out of the stadium. The less said about that, the better.

41′ – Closing in on half time here in Garoua, it’s looking like a stalemate through the first stanza.

39′ – Patient play from Zanaco, who are knocking the ball around nicely despite the pitch looking a little heavy and bumpy.

36′ – Zanaco beginning to turn the screw in attack, but Coton are holding on thus far.

34′ – Sakala with a clear shooting chance in the penalty area but his effort is straight at the goalkeeper!

32′ – Nice play from Pitroipa, as he turns away from a defender and makes space for a shot, but his effort skips wide of goalkeeper Nsabata’s left-hand post.

31′ – Coton captain Ewonde is lucky not to be booked for a cynical tackle from behind in the middle of the park.

27′ – Coton sitting quite deep in defence as they look to frustrate the Zambians, who are pushing and probing across the width of the pitch to try and find a way through.

23′ – Past the midway point of the first half, still goalless here in Garoua.

21′ – Pitroipa with a glaring chance to open the scoring after his late run is picked out by a fine cross from Kaou, but he somehow slices his shot wide!

19′ – Now the Coton goalkeeper makes a mess of trying to catch a cross and Sakala’s effort on goal is cleared off the line by Bongyang!

17′ – Zanaco’s Sakala latches onto a loose ball near the edge of the box and shoots on target, but Omossola gets behind the ball to make a comfortable save.

15′ – Zanaco with the first corner kick of the match, but it’s well dealt with by the hosts as Batai heads clear.

13′ – The first shot in anger comes from Coton’s Pitroipa, but his effort from outside the penalty flies high and wide.

12′ – Super sliding tackle from Bwenbya to cut short an attack from the hosts, who are now looking to use their pace out wide to greater effect.

9′ – Better play from Coton Sport as they look to get the likes of Pitroipa and Jean Joseph on the ball, but Zanaco still look comfortable in these early stages.

5′ – Unconvincing at the back from Coton, as a free kick from out wide for Zanaco causes a problem in the penalty area, but the hosts get it clear in the end.

4′ – Zanaco enjoying plenty of possession early on, but the teams are still finding their footing in the game.

1′ – Kick-off – We are underway in Garoua! Coton Sport wear all-white, while Zanaco don their famous red and black colours.

15h55 – The teams are out on the pitch, the referee for this match is Gabon’s Eric Otogo-Castane.

15h50 – Here are the line-ups:

Coton Sport: Omossola Simon Loti, Ewonde Ewonde, Paul Serge Mvondo, Alafi Mayakmon, Kombous Jean Joseph, Ronald Ngah Wanja, Kaou Fabril, Batai Marcel, Pitroipa Romaric, Bongyang Dzekem, Maakte Ulrich Yampili

Zanaco: Toaster Nsabata, Ziyo Tembo, Chongo Chirwa, Saith Sakala, Taonga Bwenbya, Ernest Mbewe, Kitumbo Mpiana, Richard Kasonde, Augustine Mulenga, Felix Nyaende, George Chilufya

15h45 – Fifteen minutes to kick-off in Garoua. This  is a match which presents Zanaco with the chance to go clear at the top of the group, while Coton are chasing their first points.
