South Africa will have two representatives in this year's Caf Confederation Cup group stages

Platinum Stars and SuperSport United have both booked their places in the group stages of the 2017 Caf Confederation Cup. 

Dikwena edged out AS Tanda 5-4 on penalties after overturning a 2-0 away defeat suffered over a week ago.

The home side opened the scoring 28 minutes into the game when Benson Shilongo converted a penalty which was won by Ndumiso Mabena. 

Stars had numerous goalscoring chances to increase their lead, but they were let down by their poor-decision making inside the box. 

Cavin Johnson changed things around midway through the second half, bringing on Bongi Ntuli and Gift Links to try and put the visitors under pressure. 

The move paid off as Robert N'gambi fired home with 12 minutes to go to make it 2-2 on aggregate. The match had to be decided by a penalty shoot-out.

SuperSport United on the other hand, eased into the group stages with a 5-0 hammering of Barrack Young Controllers, the scoreline which saw them win 6-1 on aggregate. 

Thabo Mnyamane fired the Tshwane outfit into an early lead after receiving a well-weighted pass from Teboho Mokoena in the third minute. 

Stuart Baxter's men were 2-0 up after 32 minutes when Jeremy Brockie had an easy tap-in following a Mnyamane pass. 

BYC hit the crossbar soon after the restart, but Brockie put the game beyond the visiting team's reach with his second of the match in the 53rd minute. 

Barrack's chances of a possible comeback were dealt a major blow when Brockie completed his hat-trick from the spot on 64 minutes. 

The New Zealand international made way for Fagrie Lakay soon after his third goal.

Lakay, who scored in the 1-1 first leg draw away to Barrack, sealed Matsatsantsa's progression with a clinical finish from close range barely three minutes after coming on. 

On Saturday, Bidvest Wits were sent packing following a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Smouha in Egypt

The Clever Boys failed to turn their dominance into goals, and paid the price just after the half-hour mark after Ben Motshwari was adjudged to have handled the ball inside the penalty area. 

Ahmed Mekky stepped up and coolly converted to make it 1-0 to Smouha, and Wits failed to get back into the game despite their improved second half performance.
