Cosmos held by Arrows

In a physical battle, Arrows were the main aggressors, as Mabhuti Khenyeza notably struck the woodwork and Rodney Ramagalela tested Sheryn Naicker with a powerful shot.

At the other end, Brice Aka dragged an effort narrowly wide, while Philani Zikalala did well to keep out a menacing free-kick just before the break.

Abafana Bes'thende, who fielded new signing Ryan Chapman against Ezenkosi, beat University of Pretoria 1-0 in their season opener.
