SuperSport United v ENPPI
SuperSport United have been dumped out of the CAF Confederation Cup after a 3-1 loss to Egyptian side ENPPI at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday.
South African sides have had a notoriously lackadaisical attitude to CAF competitions in the past, but SuperSport has talked up their determination to do well this year.
Maluleka had SuperSport in front on 10 minutes though with a fantastic strike from just outside the box that flew into the top corner.
But the tie turned on two goals in as many minutes for the visitors just before halftime and Ivorian forward Vincent die Foneye got Ismaily both.

ASEC Mimosas only managed a 1-0 victory over Lydia LB Academic on Saturday in Abidjan, in the first leg of their CAF Confederation Cup’s second round tie.
The score could have been much heavier in favour of the Ivoirians who had endless opportunities in that game, which appeared pretty much like a one way affair.
The locals had their first opportunity in the 8th minute with a Goua Mahan’s strike cleared by the Burundian keeper, Nyabenda Athanase for the header of Mimos’ skipper Hugues Zagbayou who ended up off target.
Unfortunately for the visitors, an injured Nyabenda had to leave the field, making room for second choice keeper Epimaque.
