Bahlabane Ba Ntwa will now face the 1973 African Champion in the next stage of the African Second-Class Club Championship
Marumo Gallants joined their PSL opponent Orlando Pirates in the second round of the Coffee Confederations Cup this season.
Bahlabane Ba Ntwa proved that Equatorial Guinea’s Futuro Kings FC is too strong in the first round of the second round, as they won 3-0 on Friday night.
Therefore, the Limpopo team lost 2-1 in the first leg of the Mongomo Stadium in Equatorial Guinea last weekend, winning 4-2 on a total score.
The Valiant team made their debut in the Confederations Cup and will now face the Democratic Republic of Congo giant AS Vita Club in the second round next month.
After the first round bye, the Pirates plan to face the championship between Bumamuru FC in Burundi and CSMD Diables Noirs in Congo-Brazzaville.
Last weekend, the first leg of the match ended with a 0-0 draw. Boumamoru defeated Noirs in the away game. They are now scheduled to meet in Burundi on Saturday.
Ndabayithwa Ndlondlo captured Gallants’ away goal and he started the game after passing a late fitness test at Peter Mokaba Stadium, as the hosts wanted to overcome the deficit.
Celimpilo Ngema opened the scoring in just three minutes, as the 23-year-old attacker scored his first goal of the season, defeating Galantz 1-0.
The home team then advanced for the second goal of the game, but the Kings gained a firm foothold in the backcourt and Galante took the lead at the end of the half, with a total score of 2-2.
However, a few minutes after the restart, Gallants took a 2-0 lead at night, and Ngema grabbed his support with a good result.
The Kings found it difficult to break through Bahlabane Ba Ntwa’s solid defense organized by the inspiring captain Lehlohonolo Nonyane.
Thabo Mnyamane, with 12 minutes left in the game, the former SuperSport United forward scored and secured Galante’s victory 3-0 that night.
The Valiant team has now turned their attention to their PSL campaign, as they are expected to face Maritzburg United on September 22.
The game will be played at Hariguala Stadium in Pietermaritzburg.
