Zimbabwe soccer champs Chicken Inn humbled high-flying Mamelodi Sundowns one nill at a packed Barbourfields Stadium today.

Chicken Inn's Michelle Katswayiro scored in the 34th minute of first half to send the home crowd into frenzy.

However, the home side wasted several scoring chances which might prove costly in the return leg of the preliminary round of the Caf Champions League.

In a post-match interview, Joey Antipas said "We were playing for a draw but it was  a good win. We hope to finish the job in two weeks times."

Sundown's never got to their stride and coach Pitso Mosimane said their last league match against Orlando Pirates 'drained them'.

Khama Billiat pulled out last minute with a stiff harmstring.

Line up

Chicken Inn: Elvis Chipezeze, Passmore Bernarxd, Devine Lunga, Moses Jackson, Lawrence Mhlanga, Danny Phiri, Raphael Tafadzwa Kutinyu, George Majika, Obadiah Tarumbwa, Michelle Katsvairo, Edmore Chirambadare.

Mamelodi Sundowns: Wayne Sandilands, Thabo Nthethe, Teboho Langerman, Asavela Mbekile, Wayne Arendse, Keagan Dolly, Teko Modise, Leonardo Castro, Mzikayise Mashaba, Themba Zwane, Nhlompho Kekana

Meanwhile, Chicken Inn Chairman, Lifa Ncube praised his side for stopping Sundowns winnin streak.

"Thank you to the thousands who came to BF to rally behind the Gamecocks today. Your support meant a lot and we are very grateful.Someone had to stop this team and as it so happens the Chicken prevailed. ‪#‎Sundownsmustfall‬"
