Nedbank Cup final- Downs vs Bucs. Humdinger!

NO one predicted this.

Orlando Pirates to face-off against Mamelodi Sundowns in the Nedbank Cup final on June 1, at Mbombela Stadium.

The Soweto giants, who are defending the title, brushed off the stubborn Chippa United 3-1 in PE, on Saturday, to book themselves for the finals.

On Sunday afternoon at the packed Danie Craven’s Stadium, 2023/24 PSL champs Downs’ beat Stellensbosch United 2-1.

Having won the PSL title 7-times in a row, Downs struggled against Stellies and coach Rulani Mokwena and his technical team had to conjure a tactical plan to outsmart their opponents that paid dividends.

Sundowns are still in the hunt for a domestic double.

As indicated, no one expected two football giants to proceed to the finals, and sponsors should be licking their lips for what would be a humdinger of a battle come June 1, with both black & white attire and yellow taking over the City Mbombela!

During the draw to determine which team would first use their choice of a changing room, Nedbank sponsorship manager Tobie Badenhorst, could be seen smiling from ear to mouth, on Saturday after the Bucs vs Chippa match.

Would Pirates defend what is theirs or Downs will go for broke and register their double in PSL?   

Yes, this would be another sold-affair, though tickets price details are yet to be released.
