Baroka FC played host to Kaizer Chiefs at Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday Afternoon, as the Soweto giants won 2-1.

The Peter Mokaba Stadium was a buzz with anticipation on Sunday afternoon. Steve Komphela’s side came to town aiming to claim a first ever victory against the Polokwane outfit, Baroka FC.

Amakhosi made a bright start to the encounter attacking with George Maluluka at the front, Maluleka finding Gustavo Peaz with a lovely ball over the top, but the Venezuelan shot didn’t trouble the keeper and it was cleared out of danger.

Robin Ngalande looked to set up the Bakgaga’s nerves moments later with a thunderous strike that called Itumeng Khune into action. The Soweto giants couldn’t keep that strike out as Lucky Nguzana capitalised on the re-bound which struck the framework to make it 1-0 to Baroka.

Chiefs had back with a clear chance in the match; Sphiwe Tshabalala picked up Ryan Moon in the box to put the side the side on level 1-1. Komphela then looked to take control of the game and pointed to current signing Leonardo Castro on the bench. His introduction in the game made cheers from the Chiefs fans.

Amakhosi’s party was spoiled when they were reduced to 10 men from the remainder of the game,Joseph Malangoane was shown a straight red for an elbow. However the celebration continued later as Castro made the debut  as a Kaizer Chiefs player. His debut was a good one as he scored his first goal as a Kaizer Chiefs striker, putting Chiefs on a 2-1 win talking  all three points on the bag.
