While the Citizens bowed out of the tournament and they will be keen to return to winning ways when they face Swallows FC at home in a league game on February 19.

The Citizens started the match brightly and they nearly grabbed an early goal through Juan Zapata whose effort was well-saved by goalkeeper Hugo Nyame just a minute into the game.

Thwihli Thwahla grew gradually into the game and they came very close to scoring when Tebogo Potsane hit the post with a left-footed shot in the 25th minute. The score was 0-0 at halftime.

Royal were the better start after the restart and Shadrack Kobedi’s forced goalkeeper Bongani Mpandle into a fantastic one-handed save just two minutes into the second-half.

However, City finished the second-half the stronger of the two teams with the last chance of the game falling for Taahir Goedeman whose attempt was well saved by Nyame in stoppage time.

Ultimately, the match ended in a 0-0 draw in regulation time and the encounter went straight into extra-time with a spot in the Round of 16 at stake.

City created the better chances in extra-time, but they were wasteful as Zapata and Khanyisa Mayo hit the woodwork in the 97th minute and 118th minute respectively with Royal under siege.

Ultimately, the game ended in a 0-0 draw and a penalty shootout followed. Royal went on to win 4-3 on penalties after Nyame denied Lorenzo Gordinho and Mayo during the penalty shoot.
