ANOTHER HUMDINGER is on the offering as two Soweto giants meet in KwaZulu-Natal turf for the Telkom Knockout semis at Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday 24.
The meeting of Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates always raises eye-brows, family feuds and rivalry, as happened a month ago during the league encounter of which Bucs won 2-1.
In cup competitions, Amakhosi have proven to be a hard nut to crack, especially when facing the Buccaneers, but given the Houghton-based side’s resurgence under Micho Sredojevic, anything can happen on the day.
Chiefs have not won a major trophy in over three years, while Pirates last won a major piece of silverware in 2014.
Both sides are under pressure to win something this season, and the Telkom Knockout Cup is the only realistic Cup to lift at this stage.
With tickets sold out, fans have been urged to flock to public screening that will be erected outside stadium.
The game kicks-off at 3pm.
Other TKO semis Wits will battle it out against Baroka in Polokwane on Sunday.
FNB stadium which usually hosts the Soweto derby was unavailable due to a prayer meeting on November 24 and 25 organised by the Motsepe Foundation.
