Chiefs put four past Zimamoto

Kaizer Chiefs comfortably saw off Tanzania’s Zimamoto 4-0 in the CAF Confederation Cup preliminary round in Port Elizabeth.

Chiefs made a host of changes from their Telkom Knockout exit over the weekend to Orlando Pirates, with Virgil Vries and Kabelo Mahlasela handed a starting berths in a total of seven changes.

The Soweto giants almost took an early lead when a corner from Lebogang Manyama trickled off the goal-line to Willard Katsande at the back post, but his outstretched effort went over the top.

It took only seven minutes for the deadlock to be broken when Khama Billiat’s perfectly placed free-kick crept into the bottom corner.

Colombian forward Leonardo Castro could’ve extended the lead with a free-header from a cross by Billiat, but he nodded the effort over the bar after 12 minutes.

Zimamoto quietly tried to get back into proceedings, but were let down by poor movement in the final third.

The Amakhosi still controlled the match and Castro came close to adding a second, but a good goal-line clearance prevented him.

With Billiat thumping home a second from outside the box following a loose ball, the goal was disallowed by the match officials for a foul on the goalkeeper Anissor Salim.
