Meanwhile, Kaizer Chiefs will take on Madagascar's Elgeco Plus in the next stage of the CAF Confederations Cup.

The so-called big three of South African football eased into the first round with easy wins in their respective preliminary round ties.

Sundowns demolished Leones Vegetarianos 7-1 on aggregate whereas Pirates gave a hiding to Light Stars 8-2 on aggregate.

Meanwhile, Chiefs also cruised into the next stage of the CCC with a 5-2 victory over Zimamoto.

Free State Stars, SA's other representative in the CCC, bowed out after a 1-0 defeat to Mukura.

The next games for all three clubs are two-legged affairs and success could see them advance through to the group stages.

The first leg encounters are set to be played between December 14 and 16.
