CAPE TOWN – A polished display from SuperSport United at the Bidvest Stadium on Sunday afternoon saw them running out 3-0 winners over Bidvest Wits in an MTN8 quarterfinal.
All the goals came in the second half, with Bradley Grobler netting the opener – to make it three from his last two matches – before Thamsanqa Gabuza scored a late brace, his first goals for Matsatsantsa since arriving from Orlando Pirates.
With both teams adopting a cautious approach, the first half failed to bring much in the way of goal scoring chances with the bulk of the play confined to the midfield region.
SuperSport were to have the first effort on goal when Grobler arrived at the near post to get on the end of an Evans Rusike cross, but he was unable to get his shot on target.
The only other real opportunity of a tight first half came in the 26th minute when Terrence Dzvukamanja ran in on goal, but as he pulled the trigger, SuperSport defender Siyabonga Nhlapo came flying in to make a brilliant and probably goal-saving block.
