The known as Kabo Yellow will next challenge Egyptian side Al Ahly Benghazi in the next round for a spot in the group stages.
Meanwhile, coach Pitso Mosimane was quick to react to the fixture against Benghazi.
“It’s not going to be easy [in the next round] because Ahli Benghazi won we’ll have to go to Cairo now that’s a big one. We have a team, if we play like this, create chances like this we should be able to win. We should just try and score away,” Mosimane told SuperSport TV.
