SuperSport United are through to the next stage of the CAF Confederations Cup after a 2-2 draw against AC Leopards in Kenya.
Matsatsantsa were leading 2-0 from the first leg, and goals from Thuso Phala and Sameegh Doutie ensured there were to be no upsets.
Leopards had an early goal ruled out for a foul on Ronwen Williams and had the better chances for most of the first half, with the young goalkeeper needing to be at his best to keep the scores level.
Doutie had the best chance towards the end of the half but was denied by a great one-handed save.
Leopards took the lead in the 50th minute following a goalmouth scramble, but just seven minutes later Phala scored the equaliser, finishing from close range after a great through-ball from Benett Chenene.
The home side hit the crossbar soon after, but SuperSport made sure of the aggregate win on 82 minutes when Phala crossed in for Doutie to fire home.
Leopards did score an equaliser in the dying seconds, but by then the damage had been done.
SuperSport XI: Williams, Moeketsi, Fransman, Diouf, Khumalo, Mkhabela, Doutie, Phala, Chenene, Mathebula, Niang
