With a celebration like this, you must've been thinking that United beat Sundowns or Al Ahly

Okay, so it was the Royal Eagles from the National First Division.  

Nevertheless it was a good showing by Maritzburg United to win 2-1 and you have to beat whatever is out there on the pitch.

They book their place in the next round, the quarterfinals. We actually want to see more celebrations like this in SA soccer. So, thank you United for getting the fans excited.

During the game itself, the Team of Choice opened the scoring through Deolin Mekoa, who hit the back of the net on the stroke of half-time.

Royals pushed for the equalizing goal in the second half and they did restore parity through Mame Niang.

However, Siyanda Xulu had other ideas as the defender scored a late winning goal to seal Maritzburg's 2-1 victory in the dying minutes of the game.
