Cape Town - Absa Premiership giants Kaizer Chiefs beat Zimamoto 4-0 in the first-leg preliminary clash of the CAF Confederation Cup.

Khama Billiat scored a hat-trick, while Kabelo Mahlasela netted the other goal.

According to the official Amakhosi website, there were quite a lot of changes compared to the Telkom Knockout semi-final loss to Orlando Pirates on Saturday, with Virgil Vries, Erick Mathoho, Daniel Cardoso, Teenage Hadebe, Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya, Kabelo Mahlasela and Dax Andrianarimanana all coming into the starting line-up.

Amakhosi dominated the proceedings from the beginning, getting several opportunities to score.

The first goal arrived in the seventh minute.

Kabelo Mahlasela was brought down just outside the box after which Billiat decided to take the free-kick and magnificently put the ball past the goalkeeper into the back of the net.

Leonardo Castro nearly added the second in the 13th minute, after a fine cross from Billiat. The Colombian striker, however, headed the ball just over the crossbar.

Chiefs got a few chances to extend the lead, but no further goals were scored in the first-half.

The Glamour Boys dominated their counterparts from Zanzibar even more in the second-half and it resulted in another goal from Billiat.

This time Castro was the creator with an easy layoff and the Zimbabwean slotted the ball past the goalkeeper.

Substitute Bernard Parker delivered a defence splitting left-footed pass to Mahlasela in the 68th minute with the speedy midfielder finishing cleanly from close range to make it 3-0.

Five minutes thereafter, Chiefs were deservedly given a penalty, which Billiat beautifully slotted home from the spot to complete his hat-trick.
