Azam Tigers progressed through into another phase of the Carlsberg Cup on Thursday to set a date with Silver Strikers after beating Bvumbwe United 1-0 at Kamuzu Stadium.
The game began as evenly as expected with both sides sitting back and inviting the other forward.
Isaac Kaliati scored the winning goal late in the first half after a free kick.
However, Bvumbwe United was a better side in the first half as it dominated the proceedings of the match through the likes of Mayeso Mphanje, who was their main architect.
The only problem for the tea growing based out-fit was their striking force which was wasteful.
On the other side, Tigers was instrumental on the midfield where the combination of Nafe Msasa and Malumbo Gondwe was superb.
Tigers, however, continued to mis-fire upfront, especially through former Mponela United striker Frazer Menyani.
Tigers victory means that they will face Silver Strikers next week at Kamuzu Stadium.
In another fixture, Chikwawa United,who progressed through into another round following Mzuzu City’s failure to turn up for the match will face Mighty Wanderers next week in Balaka.
Tomorrow on Friday, Big Bullets will meet Ndirande Icons at Kamuzu Stadium.
