Nedbank Cup

Real Madrid FC on Sunday won the Frances Baard leg of the preliminary stage of the Nedbank Cup competition when they beat Kwa-Nobantu Celtics 2-1 at the Galeshewe Stadium.

Madrid coach Alton Waterboer said after the game that it was a tough encounter for his side but he was happy that they held out for the result until the end.

He said the plan was for the players to give their all in the game so that they could progress further in the competition unlike the last year when they were eliminated in the opening rounds.

The match on Sunday started at a blistering pace. Both teams clearly were determined to make a bid for the title.

In the opening10 minutes Madrid found the net when Tshepo Mzolo netted (1-0).

Celtics’ back four were not on point on Sunday. Sloppy defending cost them many a slip up as Madrid got their second goal from the boot of Tshepo Kakora.

The Celtics frontline miscued shots that should ordinarily have landed in the net.

In the second half Celtics was on the verge of getting a goal back but Amogelang Lang shot into the goalkeeper’s hands.

Another chance presented itself to Celtic’s Tshenolo Setlogelo but he too wasted the opportunity.

Celtics’ super sub Amogelang Mokolopi was in the right place at the 65th minute when he turned and controlled well inside the box and shot to goal, getting his side their only credible response (1-2).

On Saturday a group game between Real Madrid and Macarena FC ended in a brawl. Real Madrid scored from the penalty spot and won the game 1-0.

After the match players started pulling and tugging at the match officials.

Apparently Macarena players were unhappy that the penalty was awarded against them.

Sol Plaatje LFA official and Macarena manager, Shorty Thebe, managed to calm the players down.
