Caps beat Lioli 2-1 to meet African giants TP Mazembe

CHAMPIONS Caps United staged a dramatic come back to edge a stubborn Lioli of Lesotho 2-1 and qualify for the first round of the Caf Champions League at the National Sports Stadium on Sunday.

The Lesotho champions gave the visitors a scare as they raced into the lead on 35 minutes through a strike by Seturuma to silence the predominantly Caps United fans.

The Caps United family had reason to be afraid as Lioli had scored a crucial away goal which meant they would qualify on a 1-0 aggregate and even if Caps United had equalised, it would still have confirmed their exit because an away goal counts double.

So the Green Machine had to dig deep. 

The visitors’ lead proved temporary as the home team returned from the break showing a lot of verve. They carved out good chances and on 50 minutes, Simba Nhivi struck a beautiful leveller. 

As Caps United continued with their dominance, launching wave after wave of attack in their opponents goal, they were rewarded on 55 minutes with new recruit Ronald 'Rooney" Chitiyo popping up with the second goal that sealed the fate for the visitors and ensured the Green Machine progressed to the first round of the prestigious competition on a 2-1 aggregate victory.

This is because the two teams settled for a goalless draw in the first leg in Maseru last weekend.

Lloyd Chitembwe's men will now meet five time African Champions, TP Mazembe of DRC.
