SuperSport United is gearing up to host Gaborone United from the neighbouring Botswana in the highly anticipated return leg of the CAF Confederation Cup.
The much-anticipated second leg clash is set to take place on Friday night at the iconic New Peter Mokaba Stadium, which served as a venue during the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
The match is scheduled to kick off at 7pm.
This match is of paramount importance for Matsatsantsa, as they are determined to secure a victory after playing to a hard-fought 1-1 draw with the Gaborone-based outfit a fortnight ago.
The turning point in the previous encounter came three minutes into the second half when Keenan Bezuidenhout, a product of the DStv Diski Challenge squad, found the back of the net, putting Matsatsantsa in the lead.
While it seemed that SuperSport United was poised to return home with a positive result, the Botswana outfit managed to level the score during the referee’s added time, setting the stage for an electrifying rematch.
In this second leg encounter, SuperSport United is determined to capitalize on their home-ground advantage, drawing support not only from the Limpopo province but also from their fan base in the Gauteng province, where they are based.
he fervent backing of their loyal supporters is expected to play a pivotal role in their quest for victory.
