Interesting match-ups in Nedbank Cup

Last year’s runners-up Orlando Pirates were drawn against Cape Town City in the Nedbank Cup last 16 draw at the SuperSport Studios in Randburg on Thursday night.

Kaizer Chiefs, who are the most successful club in cup competitions, will host National First Division side Stellenbosch FC.

Mamelodi Sundowns take on minnows EC Bees, who play in the third division. Sundowns hold the record for the highest scoring victory after they won 24-0 in 2012. Their fans will likely hope for plenty of goals again for the league leaders who boast a lethal attacking line.

Bloemfontein Celtic have a date against Richards Bay, formerly Thanda Royal Zulu, the highest scoring side in the last 32 where they won their clash with Bloemfotein Young Tigers 5-0.

Celtic, on the hand, dumped defending champions SuperSport United out of the tournament via penalty shootouts.

There will be another KZN derby when Maritzburg United face NFD outfit Richards Bay. United overcame rivals Golden Arrows in the previous round.

The Premier Soccer League will announce the dates, times and venues at a later stage.
