It was Celtic who came out strongly and nearly took the advantage in the sixth minute when Tshegofatso Mabaso stole into space and latched on to a square pass but he struck his effort wide at the near post.

In the 14th minute the same player came close again as he found space and fired a strike on target which Bruce Bavuma saved superbly. 

The lively Dumisani Zuma nearly made it 1-0 but he hit the bar in the 26th minute. It would have perhaps been a Goal-of-the-Season contender had it gone in.

With that said, Khama Billiat got the opener when he broke clear before slotting home with precision beyond Patrick Tignyemb in the Celtic goal.

After the break, Chiefs added to the score-line as Khotso Malope got into the act. Sent clear by Leo Castro, he dinked a superb finish over the Tignyemb. 

But Celtic fought back with Menzi Masuku scoring in the 75th minute after a superb set-up by Ndumiso Mabena.

Three minutes later the experienced forward shocked Chiefs fans as he struck home a brilliant leveler.
