Needing a win for their final group stage encounter, Matsatsantsa brushed aside Group D whipping boys Mounana FC 4-1 to finish second in the group following TP Mazembe’s 2-1 victory over Horoya, thus securing their passage into the knockout phase of the competition.
Having been in continental action over the past month throughout the domestic off-season, this encounter signalled the official end of SuperSport’s 2016/17 campaign, with some their stars taking to social media to express their joy at finishing the season on a high.
Midfielder Letsholonyane, who started his 300th top-flight encounter in Saturday night’s win, revealed his pride in helping his side qualify for the last eight.
