One must die

It is the Nedbank Cup last 32 round this weekend as a mixture of teams from the domestic league from the smallest to the biggest prepare to take each other on.

Fortunately for the South African faithful we will be treated to a delicious looking line-up of fixtures for the Nedbank Cup. Most anticipated is the Soweto Derby between Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates scheduled to play at the FNB Stadium on Saturday.

It will be interesting to see who between the giant rivals will be granted a spot in the next round of the cup competition.

Both teams have not been doing badly in all competitions. In the last five fixtres Pirates have won three and lost twice. They are seventh on the log table and have been climbing ever so graciously. With their midfield wizard Oupa Manyisa on his way back they will need to win against Chiefs to at least have a chance of finishing the season with silverware.

On the other hand Chiefs have been a bit more consistent with four wins and a single draw including the CAF Champions League victories against Volcan Club of Cosmoros. They are placed third on the Absa Premiership table and have a chance to get to a third final after their failed MTN 8 and Telkom Knockout chances.

FNB Stadium is the venue and kick-off is scheduled for 15:00pm
