83' Leonardo Castro makes way for Anthony Akumu Agay.

19 June 22:41

82' Amakhosi have been on the backfoot for the majority of the second stanza as they desperately hold onto the slender one-goal lead.

19 June 22:38

76' El Karti controls a pass and from the edge of the box drills a shot in on goal, but it is blocked by a Chiefs defender and cleared.

19 June 22:37

73' SUB: Njabulo Blom is replaced by Kearyn Baccus.

19 June 22:36

71' CHANCE! Dari latches onto the free-kick from Ounajem but his effort off the head floats just over the cross bar from close range. 

19 June 22:35

69' SUB: Simon Msuva (Wydad) replaces Muaid Ellafi.

19 June 22:24

64' Bvuma with another brilliant save! 

Walid El Karti hits a 25-yard strike towards the roof of the net and Bruce Bvuma is almost caught out but pulls off a fantastic save. 

19 June 22:21

61' SUB: Philani Zulu comes on for Yagan Sasman 

19 June 22:20

60' CHANCE! Mohammed Ounajem (Wydad) takes a free-kick from a promising position, but his effort flies inches wide of the right post. The ball goes out of play and Kaizer Chiefs will have a goal kick.

19 June 22:16

54' However, the referee waves play on. Wydad players and staff are furious.

19 June 22:14

53' Screams of handball from Wydad players as the ball ricochet off a gold and black shirt in the penalty area!

19 June 22:09

50' As expected, Wydad starting the second stanza with intensity in attack but Chiefs standing strong and firm.

Great attitude shown by both teams. We have a game on our hands. Get yourself a drink! 

19 June 22:03

45' We're back! Second-half has begun ...

19 June 21:49


That brings us to the end of the first-half here between Wydad and Kaizer Chiefs.

The away side getting an all-important away goal.

19 June 21:47

45' Bvuma produces a valiant save from a free-kick to keep the score at 1-0 in Amakhosi's favour.

19 June 21:37

Samir Nurkovic steers Amakhosi to a 1-0 lead.

*After a VAR check, the Serbian-born has seen his goal been given.

19 June 21:37


19 June 21:32

26' CHANCE! Walid El Karti rises and connects a sweet header towards goal only for it to slight slightly over the crossbar.

19 June 21:29

23' It would be interesting to see which players Amakhosi bring in given that they have served their full transfer ban.

They are short of some good midfielders as George Maluleka joined Sundowns ahead of the last season.

19 June 21:27

18' Wydad are pressing Amakhosi with venom as the away side struggling to string a few good passes here. 

19 June 21:23

13' Despite all that possession, Wydad have not troubled Bvuma so far and that is good for Amakhosi. The longer the game goes goalless the more comfort Chiefs will be hoping to find. 

19 June 21:16

10' Chiefs look nervous. Sloppy clearances and all. Need to get hold of the ball to find comfort. 

19 June 21:15

5' Amakhosi defending conservatively as Wydad push the ball around with intent. The home side seeking space to cause worry in the early stages.
