Nedbank Cup Last 32 match report Cape Town City v SuperSport United 26 January 2019

Posted: 26 January 2019 Time: 19:14

Cape Town City defeated SuperSport United 2-0 to progress to the last 16 of the Nedbank Cup on Saturday night at Cape Town Stadium.

The Citizens were looking to keep the momentum going after thrashing Free State Stars 5-0 in their last match in the league.

Meanwhile, Matsatsantsa were looking to get the better of City, who had beaten them three times already this season - twice in the Absa Premiership and in the MTN8 Final via penalties.

The game got off to a quiet start with regards to chances, but Thato Mokeke eventually broke the deadlock for Benni McCarthy’s men in the 36th minute with a header from six-yards out.

SuperSport, meanwhile, found it tough to breakdown the City defence as striker Bradley Grobler cut a frustrated figure upfront.

Thamsanqa Mkhize doubled the lead for City four minutes before the hour with a low strike inside the box that took a deflection and wrong footed goalkeeper Ronwen Williams after some good work by Ayanda Patosi.

United were looking for fresh legs after the hour-mark as veteran midfielder Reneilwe Letsholonyane made way for Kagiso Malinga, while City threw on Kermit Erasmus for Ayanda Patosi soon after.

SuperSport looked to mount a comeback late in the second half but the likes of Bradley Grobler and Aubrey Modiba were denied by a combination of good defending and good goalkeeping from Peter Leeuwenburgh.
