SuperSport United will now focus on their crucial Orange CAF Confederation Cup fixture this coming weekend.
Matsatsantsa welcome AFC Leopards of Kenya in the 16th round of the CAF tournament.
The match takes place at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday at 8:15pm.
This will be the two sides’ first official meeting on the continent.
A few seasons ago, the SA outfit participated in the Tusker Cup in the capital of Nairobi during coach Pitso Mosimane’s reign.
The home side is going into this match after losing to Bidvest Wits in the domestic league on Tuesday night in Johannesburg.
In the preliminary round, SuperSport won both legs 2-0 at home and 1-0 away respectively. Senegalese international Mame Niang netted all the three strikes.
