CAPS United produced a good second half display to come from behind to beat Lesotho Lioli 2-1 in the CAF Champions League this afternoon.

See: Action as it happened 

Lioli gave CAPS United anxious moments in the early stages of the game and the home side almost conceded in the 7th minute after defensive mix up lead to a goalmouth scramble.

CAPS United eventually settled into the match and started creating good chances with Tafadzwa Rusike come close but putting his shot over.

However despite their dominance Lioli stunned CAPS United when Tsepo Seturumane scored with a well taken shot that beat Edmore Sibanda.

CAPS United continued to create chances as the half progressed but were let down by poor finishing.

Halftime came with Lioli holding onto to the lead despite CAPS United coming close to scoring on several occassion.

CAPS United started the second half in the same way they had ended  the first pressing for a goal and this time only had to wait five minutes to equalise with Simba Nhivi finally scoring in the 50th minute.

The introduction of Cabby Kamphapa for Joel Ngodzo gave CAPS United more of a an attacking threat going forward.

A few minutes after coming on Kamhapa set up Ronald Chitiyo who dribbled one defender before slotting home with his right foot to score the all important second goal and the winner.

CAPS United continued to pile on the pressure forcing Lioli into defending as the half progressed but despite going close could not add to their tally.

The win sees CAPS United through to the next round of the preliminary stage where they face African giants TP Mazembe next month.
