Supersport  were leading 2-0 from the first leg, and goals from Thuso Phala and Sameegh Doutie ensured there were to be no upsets.

Leopards had an early goal ruled out for a foul on Ronwen Williams and had the better chances for most of the first half, with the young goalkeeper needing to be at his best to keep the scores level.

Doutie had the best chance towards the end of the half but was denied by a great one-handed save.

Leopards took the lead in the 50th minute following a goalmouth scramble, but just seven minutes later Phala scored the equaliser, finishing from close range after a great through-ball from Benett Chenene.

The home side hit the crossbar soon after, but SuperSport made sure of the aggregate win on 82 minutes when Phala crossed in for Doutie to fire home.

In Tunisia, Tunisian club Esperance Sportive de Tunis on Monday drubbed Kenya Premier League champions Gor Mahia 5-0 in a one-sided second leg, first round match of the Caf Africa Champions League at the Stade Olympique de Rades in Tunnis.

Gor Mahia, missing the services of first-choice goalkeeper and captain Jerim Onyango through shoulder injury, held out for the better part of first-half but Esperance soon found a way past K’Ogalo’s defence to score the first goal at the stroke of half-time.

The hard-working Iheb Msakni gave the hosts a deserved lead on the stroke of half-time and Heithem Jouini then made it 2-0 six minutes after the break after driving home a pass from Iheb Mbarki.

Ghanian Harrison Afful then made it three-nil to the North Africans before further goals from Msakni and Idriss Mrihisi completed the rout that saw the Kenyan team lose the tie 8-2 on aggregate.

The tie had been rescheduled to Monday from Sunday due to heavy rains that had rendered the playing surface unplayable.

This result confirms the exit of both Kenyan teams from the continental stage this season.

On Sunday, AFC Leopards drew 2-2 with South Africa’s SuperSport United in the second leg of the first round match of the Caf Confederations Cup. Leopards, however, lost 4-2 on aggregate to the South Africans to exit the tournament.

According to the regional football governing body Secretary General, Nicholas Musonye, all preliminary games will be played in Nairobi and Machakos. “For easier management and planning, other towns, Kisumu, Mombasa and Mumias will host some knockout matches,” Musonye disclosed on Tuesday. “We had expressed our reservation about the readiness of Kisumu but with the decision to have the preliminary matches in Nairobi, the lakeside town have more time to prepare,” the official added. Cecafa technical committee officials arrive in the country on Thursday to tour the venues and make a final submission on their fitness to host the competition that runs from November 27 to December 12. Football Kenya Federation (FKF) boss Sam Nyamweya told the organisers that the artificial turf has already been taken to Kisumu and work to lay it will commence before the end of the week. “The government approved the Sh3.6 million for the clearing for the turf. We have also agreed with the Kisumu County Government to clear the huge pile of garbage adjacent to the stadium,” the FKF boss added.
