Farmer comes on for Grobler. That's an interesting change. Perhaps SuperSport are content with the way things stand.

Mazembe continue to attack. A dangerous ball is fizzed in from the right, but it just evades the man in the box, who could have finished with just a touch.
NO PENALTY! Furman commits what looks like a reckless foul in the penalty area on Asante from behind, but for some reason, the spot-kick isn't given!

Now SuperSport are on the front foot. Matampi makes two saves to deny Wome and Nhlapo.
HALF-TIME: TP MAZEMBE 1-0 SUPERSPORT UNITED. It's been an entertaining half at the Stade du TP Mazembe. The hosts go into the break ahead thanks to a long-range strike from Traore, which Williams was unable to spot in time to make a save.

GOAL! Mazembe take the lead through Adama Traore! Williams can't see his shot from outside the box in time to stop it and punches it into his own net! 1-0.
WHAT A MISS! Phala puts a delightful ball across the face of goal, but Grobler somehow misses from right in front with the net at his mercy!
TP Mazembe are afforded another chance. The ball flies over Furman's head and falls to Ushindi, but he can't hit the target.
Daniels takes the ball off Traore before he can get a shot away. The two of them look as if they are in for a fierce battle today.

POST! Ushindi rattles the upright! This is end-to-end stuff early on.
