Gavin Hunt's men played to yet another draw against Petro de Luanda on Sunday evening, despite controlling the majority of proceedings
The PSL side will return to South Africa unscathed but should have scored on multiple ocassions during the encounter.
Edwin Gyimah was guilty of shooting wide in the first half when the opener was beckoning for SuperSport. The striker also missed a fantastic opportunity in the second stanza when he placed a free header straight into the keeper's hands.
A red card for Petro's Miguel meant SuperSport had an excellent opportunity to see off the hosts, but Gavin Hunt's men did not take advantage following the sending off.
Kermit Erasmus was unlucky not to find the back of the net late on in the second half, as he was denied by a brilliant save.
Sibusiso Zuma almost sealed victory with a spectacular bicycle kick in the dying embers of the game, but saw his effort slam into the crossbar.
Gavin Hunt's side will go into the second leg of the tie with home advantage on April the 4th, but will need to provide a more potent display in attack if Matsatsantsa wish to continue their continental cup journey.
