Mazembe are the defending Confederation Cup champions and have won the CAF Champions League five times.
25 Nov 19:47
SuperSport's away goal means a 1-0 home win on Saturday will see them crowned champions. If Mazembe snatch an away goal, Matsatsantsa will have to score twice to take the tie to extra time, or three times to win it outright.
25 Nov 19:46

"I'm happy with the [first leg] result. We won the game, we didn't lose or draw. We're going to try and be at 100 percent for the return game,"  Mihayo said.

"We must play in Pretoria. If we go there only content to stay back and play in the defensive part of the field then it's going to be very difficult for us because the opponent can always put you under pressure. After that, you're going to conceded goals," Mihayo added. 

25 Nov 19:45

TP Mazembe coach Pamphile Mihayo has warned his men not to sit back and defend their lead against SuperSport United in the CAF Confederation Cup decider.

Last Sunday in Lubumbashi, the DR Congo giants recorded a 2-1 victory over Matsatsantsa in the first leg of the 2017 Confederation Cup final. 

The second leg takes place at Lucas Moripe Stadium in Pretoria on Saturday night, and Mihayo has cautioned his men against taking an overly cautious approach. 

25 Nov 19:43

"A lot revolves around [Traore] and Mazembe are a very direct team, and if you give him time and space, he brings the ball down nicely and brings other attacking players into the game," Brockie said.

"It's going to be important to cut the supply into him, that's half the job done, then we just have to focus on what we have to do," he added.

25 Nov 19:42
Meanwhile, SuperSport striker Jeremy Brockie leads the competition’s scoring charts with 10 goals, but he has sounded a caution over Mazembe forward Adama Traore.
25 Nov 19:38

"It is very different," he was quoted.

"It's a continental cup final. It's not a local cup final where you play against teams that you play against all the time. 

"Now we are playing against one of the best teams on the continent and they are the defending champions of this competition. So winning against such a team would be an achievement for me personally and for the club as a whole.

"The reason we play football or any sport is to compete in such games. Realising those dreams is something huge, so I am very excited and honoured to be part of this SuperSport group that is going to play in the final," he added.

25 Nov 19:38
Letsholonyane's attacking prowess will give SuperSport coach Eric Tinkler some good additional options and explained why victory on Saturday would taste extra sweet, and why it's such a big game.

  • 80'

    Supersport have a chance with a free kick on the edge of the box after Phala was brought down. Grobler is the man with the responsibility to take it and once again he wastes the opportunity as it goes high over the bar.

  • 78'

    Supersport need a goal in the last 15 or so minutes here and are pressing forward but continue to struggle to create chances. TP Mazembe are posing a threat on the counter, however, and the hosts must be wary.

    TP Mazembe are in a two-on-two situation but it comes to an end quickly as Mashamaite brings down his man with an arm to the face and he receives a yellow card for his troubles.

  • 68'

    It's been very stop start in the last few minutes with many TP Mazembe players needing to be treated for various injury. The visitors seem to be struggling with cramp. Supersport continue to struggle to create a chance and are yet to have a shot on target

  • 66'

    Substitution for Supersport now as Brockie is replaced by Wome as manager Tinkler looks to add something different up top for the hosts.

  • 64'

    Substitution for TP Mazembe as Mika comes on to replace Adjei.

  • 60'

    Substitution for TP Mazembe as Kalaba is replaced by Elia.

  • 59'

    Supersport are on top in the second half as they've managed to pin TP Mazembe back into their own half. The hosts have struggled to provide opportunities for their forwards so far in the game but it's looking more likely.

  • 55'

    CHANCE! Supersport have a great chance as Phala whips a corner into the box which is flicked on by Daniels at the far post towards Grobler and Mashamaite at the far post who just need to direct it on target but neither connects with the ball.

  • 50'

    Both sides have come out with intent in the second half with TP Mazembe looking to get forward quickly and winning a corner which comes to nothing before Supersport have an attack of their own which also comes to nothing as the final pass is cut out.

  • 46'

    We're back underway for the second half! Supersport need at least a goal in this second half or TP Mazembe will claim the trophy.

  • 45'

    Half time here at the Lucas Moripe Stadium and it's goalless at the break. TP Mazembe started the half on fire and should have had two early goals, but Supersport came back well to finish strong before the break. 0-0.

  • 43'

    Supersport are ending the half well with some threatening play in the final third of the pitch but the ball into the box to the likes of Grobler and Brockie has been poor, resulting in the hosts not having much to show for it.

  • 42'

    Yellow card for Kalaba for blatant pull back on Nhlapo as the fullback looked to push forward.

  • 38'

    TP Mazembe have another opportunity after the ball is worked down the left before Malongo looked to cut onto his right foot and curl a shot into the far corner, but it's a few yards wide.

  • 36'

    TP Mazembe win the ball high up the field with a hard challenge and it's shifted towards Kalaba in midfield who has a shot from range but it's a weak effort that Williams can save easily.

  • 34'

    TP Mazembe have not managed to threaten in the last 20 or so minutes after looking very dangerous in the opening few minutes. Supersport continue to work the ball around but are struggling to pick out the right passes in the final third.

  • 26'

    The conditions are very wet at the moment with players slipping at times. The game has died down a bit as Supersport hold a bit more of the ball but without much reward.

  • 30'

    Supersport have a chance with a free kick on the edge of the Mazembe area after Mbule was brought down. Grobler strikes the ball straight into the wall before the hosts cross it back in and have the ball in the net only for it to be ruled out for offside.

  • 22'

    Supersport have managed to slow the game down a bit after the fast start by the visitors but are yet to get in behind the TP Mazembe defence. The hosts will be happy for the meantime as they've stopped the threat from the visitors for now.

  • 18'

    It's been a brilliant start from TP Mazembe who have been very attacking and have created two clear-cut chances without reward. Supersport are struggling to get into the game at the moment with the hosts not able to hold the ball for extended periods.

  • 14'

    CHANCE! TP Mazembe have another chance after Kalaba did brilliantly to get to the byline and cut the ball back for Adjei to put the ball into an empty net but he mishits the ball and it goes just wide!

  • 10'

    CHANCE! TP Mazembe have a great chance as Kalaba is put clean through with just the keeper to beat. He has a poor touch before attempting to slot the ball past Williams but he lifts it high over the bar.

  • 7'

    TP Mazembe have an opportunity of their own to get forward but Supersport do well to hold their shape in defence which results in Sinkala shooting from range, but his effort goes way over the bar and it's a goal kick.

  • 4'

    Supersport have an early corner after a good move from Furman Nhlapo and Phala ends with a blocked cross going behind. The corner is played in low towards the near post and is flicked on but it's wide of the goal.
