Bidvest Wits were made to pay dearly for the missed chances in their match against Santos when they lost 1-0 at Bidvest Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

A few minutes later Vilakazi came close, but his shot from Myeni's cross rebounded off the crossbar.
The score at half time was 0-0.
Two minutes in the second half Myeni broke the offside trap but his shot went wide.
In the 67th minute Santos had their first chance of the match through Jurie Basie, but too could not find the target.
