A solitary goal from Leonardo Castro was enough to send Kaizer Chiefs through to the CAF Champions League group stage after a hard fought 1-0 aggregate win over CD Primero de Agosto in the first round on Tuesday in Angola.

Amakhosi went into the game as an underdog after playing to a goalless draw at FNB Stadium in the first-leg.

Chiefs made three changes from the team that started the goalless draw first-leg. Bernard Paker, Castro and Darrel Matsheke started the game ahead of Willard Katsande, Nkosingiphile Ngcobo and Lebogang Manyama. Last season’s top goal scorer Samir Nurkovic started on the bench.

Amakhosi scored the only goal of the two-legged match in the 41st minute as Castro volleyed in a cross from Khama Billiat.

Chiefs held on to progress to the group stages without conceding a goal in both the preliminary round and first round.
