Bidvest Wits suffered a 2-1 defeat away to Saint-Louisienne in their first leg preliminary round CAF Champions League fixture on Saturday.

The Reunion Island-based side grabbed the equaliser midway through the second stanza, before taking the lead from the penalty spot late on.
Wits will welcome the away goal as they host the return leg at the Bidvest Stadium next Saturday.
