Tanzanian heavyweights Simba SC have been bundled out of the CAF Champions League despite a 3-0 win over South African side Kaizer Chiefs at the Benjamin Mkapa Stadium in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania on Saturday afternoon.

Kaizer Chiefs who advance in the last four for the first time in history, held on to progress on a 4-3 aggregate after winning big, 4-0, in the first leg of the quarterfinals at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg last Saturday.

Wekundu wa Msimbazi were determined to overturn the result, breaking the deadlock in the 24th minute through John Bosco and looked on course for a historic victory.

The game went to the break 1-0 in favour of the hosts.

Simba SC bossed through the second half in pursuit of four more goals and their efforts paid off in the 56th minute when Bosco came to round off his brace.

The Amakhosi realized their goose was almost being cooked and resorted to defend their two-goal cushion while pursuing a crucial away goal on counterattack.

Zambian Clatous Chama bagged the third goal four minutes to stoppage time as Simba wrecked havoc on the visitors’ defence with the crowd charging with hope of sealing a historic win.

The Tanzanian league leaders however failed to get the fourth goal that could have assured them 30 more minutes of getting the job done, and bowed out on a 4-3 aggregate having managed 38 attempts with 10 on target from a 63% ball possession.
