Nedbank Cup last-16 draw

Nedbank Cup last-16 draw

Kaizer Chiefs face a NFD side in the Nedbank Cup last-16, which is an ominous sign for the Soweto giants.

Amakhosi are known to falter against opposition from the lower leagues, especially in the Nedbank Cup, and sighs of disparagement echoed at The Venue in Melrose Arch where the draw was held.

Of the eight games, three will be all-Premier Soccer League clashes, with only one match being an all-National First Division encounter.

Black Leopards take on Platinum Stars, Free State Stars and Bloemfontein Celtic meet in a derby and Mamelodi Sundowns host Golden Arrows.

Maluti FET College, who saw off Orlando Pirates comfortably in the previous round with a 4-1 victory, will face African Warriors.

Defending Nedbank champions SuperSport United travel to Cape Town to take on Vasco da Gama, Jomo Cosmos host fellow NFD rivals United FC and Tembu Royals have another KZN opponent in Maritzburg United.

Royals, a Safa Second Division side, beat AmaZulu 2-1 in the last-32 round.

The venues and dates for the games are to be confirmed by the PSL.
