Three of the four remaining teams have won the Nedbank Cup in the past – only Baroka are yet to taste the success despite their good run of form in the competition.

Zimbabwean number 1, Elvis Chipezeze will lead Baroka when they face Bloemfontein Celtic who will be without left fullback Ronald Pfumbidzai who is unable to travel from Zimbabwe. The match will be played at Orlando Stadium in Soweto in an afternoon kick-off at 14:00 on the 8th of August.

The Brazilians, as Mamelodi Sundowns is known in football circles host Bidvest Wits at Orlando Stadium in a match kicking off at 19:15 on Saturday the 8th of August. Bidvest are home to Mclive Phiri and Terrence Dzvukamanja who are sure to start the match.

Wits have two Nedbank Cup titles to their name – they won their first in 1978 and added a second title just before the 2010 Fifa World Cup.

Celtic have been to one Nedbank Cup final – and that was in 1985 under a different sponsor. Mamelodi Sundowns have tasted glory in this competition on four previous occasions with their last success coming in 2015.

Catch the two matches on SuperSport and SABC1 tv.
