SuperSport United advance into the final of the 2017 CAFCC following a 4-2 aggregate win. 

90+2' OFF THE LINE! Clayton Daniels the next to clear off the line following a silly mistake by Ronwen Williams.

90' Four minutes added.

86' Bilel Ifa goes into the referee's book. Club Africain growing ever more frustrated and unstable so. They have been outplayed this evening.

80' Into the final 10 minutes we go in Radès and SuperSport are inching ever closer to a first final appearance.  Life seemed to be sucked out of Club Africain following Grobler's second.

73' Ronwen Williams with a good save to guide Saber Khalifa's shot out for a corner-kick. Game has become very open.

70' SAVE! Great stop by Atef Dkhili to deny Aubrey Modiba from close range. Matsatsantsa dangerous on the counter-attack with Club Africain's spirit having taken a massive blow following Grobler's second.

64' GOAL! Grobler bags his brace after being played through on goal by Thuso Phala. The Matsatsantsa pair team up once more to put the tie beyond Club Africain...surely!

63' As things stand, Club Africain need two goals if they are to progress - SuperSport with two vital away goals.

60' SuperSport United are going defence as Jeremy Brockie makes way for Tefu Mashamaite. Parking the bus here.

56' GOAL! Saber Khalifa converts from the spot following a foul inside the area by Morgan Gould.

52' GOAL! Jeremy Brockie doubles the visitors lead after being put through on goal by Teboho Mokoena. The New Zealand international with his 10th goal of the campaign.

49' Positive start to the second-half by Matsatsantsa as Teboho Mokoena tries his luck from range. Flares starting to take flame inside the stadium, but the fire department seem to have things under control.

46' The second half is underway.

45+1' Half-Time: Club Africain 0-1 SuperSport United (Grobler 16')

45' One minute added.

40' Matsatsantsa holding on by the skin of their teeth here as Africain continue their desperate search for a goal.

35' SAVE! Ronwen Williams with a brilliant diving save to deny Ghazi Ayadi from a corner-kick.

33' Eric Tinkler urging his troops to not sit too deep with Africain applying a lot of pressure on their opponents.

30' End-to-end encounter in Radès with the hosts now upping the tempo. Africain, though, have to show more patience - crowd frustrated by their option to shoot from range.

26' CHANCE! Ibrahim Chenihi with a chance to pull the two teams level, but he scuffs his shot wide from close range.

24' Frustrating start to the game for Club Africain, with the Tunisian club forced to chance their luck from range.

21' Morgan Gould goes into the referee's book.

17' CLEARED OFF THE LINE! Africain almost hit back instantly, but Morgan Gould is well positioned to clear Opoku Nicholas' attempt off the line!

16' GOAL! What a goal by Bradley Grobler to give SuperSport United the lead. The forward directs a thunderous header into the top corner from an pin-point Thuso Phala cross.

11' Letsholonyane with an important clearing header at the near post from a Africain corner-kick. The Tunisian outfit will have another chance to whip the ball into a dangerous area from a free-kick...

8' Neither side willing to commit too many players in attack with Club Africain trying their luck from way out on two occasions thus far. Nothing to really test Ronwen Williams.

4' Positive start by the visitors who are quickest out of the blocks in Tunisia. Teboho Mokoena seeing a lot of the ball in the early exchanges.

1' Kick-off!

- All to do for SuperSport United following a 1-1 draw at the Lucas Moripe Stadium in Atteridgeville earlier this month.

- The aggregate winner will take on TP Mazembe in this season's final. The defending champions edged FUS Rabat over two legs.
