Kaizer Chiefs and Ajax Cape Town draw in MTN8 semifinal

Posted: 20 August 2011 Time: 22:10

Kaizer Chiefs and Ajax Cape Town drew 0-0 in the first leg of the MTN8 semifinals at the FNB Stadium on Saturday night.

In a tense and conservative match, few chances were created and the teams looked content to settle for a goalless draw, leaving next week’s second leg in Cape Town as the decisive encounter of the tie.

Neither team was really able to take control in any meaningful way or create genuine scoring chances in the first half.

Ajax had perhaps the best opportunity in the 27th minute when Lebogang Manyama picked out Khama Billiat with a cross, but the Zimbabwean attacker could only help the ball in to the arms of Itumeleng Khune.

Chiefs’ best attack saw overlapping fullback Jimmy Tau hit the outside of the near post with a deflected cross from the by-line on 31 minutes, but Ajax ‘keeper Sean Roberts would have had the effort covered if it had been on target.

The second half followed a similar pattern to the first, though Chiefs did have one spell where they looked like they were going to break the deadlock and take control of the tie.

The introduction of winger Mandla Masango just past the hour mark was the inspiration behind their improvement, and the 22-year-old had the best chance of game on 72 minutes, springing free down the right before beating Roberts with a shot, but Man of the Match Nazeer Allie clear the effort off the goal line.

Ajax had two great chances in the remainder of the match, with Manyama and Billiat each having a good opportunity in the closing stages, but the former was denied by Khune while the latter drove his effort into the side netting.

Lol. This guy says Chiefs must come to Cape Town to see football and then says Masandawana will win this Cup. Where's the logic there?

To all Bucs sapotas who hate Chiefs, i say u hate Chiefs bcoz u cnt match their achievements, in yo last 2 games, i ddnt c the soccer lessons u always talk about, i saw two goalkeeping blunders by Leopards & a get-out-of jail goal frm the player u hate, Mabena.

I'm still waiting 2 c that football 101 u r talking about, if Mayambela is doing it, then i dnt wnt 2 c that football 101, bcoz he plays rubbish.

4 life.

Now I see why they don't like Masango. The guy is wastefull. Wat I hate is that he's so skilfull he takes everyone infront of him but his final touch Bathong O_o? Its now a matter of timew that defenders watch him making the counter and don't bother chasing him because its obvious that he'll waste it.

Ajax outclassed us,We played at home but the man of the match was an opponent, damn it man. Vlad V says the guys were not ready take all those who are ready nd leave the not ready one at the camp. What happened to other guys Nale, Ngcobo nd more, we are just everage team. We wont beat Mvela team with this performance. Ajax are happy the hold us nil nil draw.Next wednesday i want to see all the players on the bench playing. Watch tomorrows game. Tonight i'm very disappointed and angry!!

people like this K of rats should just shut the f*** up becoz they realy are clueless...if u did bother 2 watch the match u would have noticed the level of tacticalness,this was about discipline something yo headless chickens know not about & just 2 give u a friendly warning downs will down u in this cup not bcoz they superior 2u but bcoz yo team has no clue as much as its supporters.I cannot wait 4 the end of this season so that we stop living in this tremble sh** u feed us.

They bossed us in the midfield.Thanks to Nengomasha who put up a great fight.Masango brought life into our team.There"s nothing to fear in going toCT.We will beat then even there.Just don"t field Kaizer and Baloyi if Yeye is available.

The night game is always on high and zimbabwe players came to south africa 4 1 thing to play soccer and work. In a game billiat, risuke, nengomashe and musona was missing with final touch. It wil be great to watch second leg.
