Wits, Stars win CAF Openers

Bidvest Wits and Platinum Stars got their respective CAF Competitions off to a positive start, with wins in the preliminary rounds over the weekend.  Wits, playing in the Champions League, registered a 4-2 aggregate win over Reunion's St Louisienne on Saturday despite losing the first leg 2-1 a week before. A 3-1 win for The Clever Boys ensured they set a date to face the eight-time Champions League winners, Al Ahly in the last 32 round to be played on the weekend of March 10-12.  The match will be staged at the Al-Salam Stadium in Cairo. Meanwhile, Stars also defeated Songo 2-0 on aggregate in the opening round of the CAF Confederation Cup in Maputo on Saturday.
 Dikwena won the two legs by 1-0 and will certainly be in search of the same dominance in the next round.
