While there was only one DSTV Premiership game on Sunday as Chippa and TTM drew, Kaizer Chiefs and Bloemfontein Celtic were also in action, as they began with away wins in CAF continental competitions.
Chippa United Tshakhuma 1-1 Tsha Madzivhandila
It was the fourth 1-1 draw of the weekend as Chippa and TTM couldn’t be separated at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
Chippa looked to have scored in the 22nd minute but Washington Arubi made a fantastic save off the line to deny Augustine Kwem the opener.
However two minutes later Kwem gave Chippa the lead (though dubiously as the goal should not have stood as the officials missed seeing a handball and that the ball had gone out in the move that led to the strike). 1-0 Chippa.
Five minutes into the second half and TTM were level, Thabo Rakhale scoring his first goal of the season to make it 1-1.
Meshack Maphangule was booked for the second time just past the hour mark, and TTM were reduced to ten men, but were able to hold on for the draw with ten men.
Kaizer Chiefs began their CAF Champions League campaign against PWD Baremba of Cameroon, Eric Mathoho scoring a late goal to give Chiefs a 1-0 win at the Limbe Omnisport Stadium. Itumeleng Khune also had to save a last minute penalty to secure the victory.
Meanwhile Bloemfontein Celtic beat AS Maniema Union of the Democratic Republic Congo 2-0 in their first CAF Confederations Cup game. Harris Tchilimbou and Menzi Ndwandwe scored the important away goals for Celtic at the Joseph Kabila Kabange Stadium.
