Highlands Park draw mighty Mamelodi Sundowns

28 February 2020 | Sports

Mamelodi Sundowns will clash with Highlands Park in the quarter-finals of the Nedbank Cup, hoping to avoid the fate suffered by Kaizer Chiefs at the Makhulong Stadium in the previous round.

Highlands defeated the AmaKhosi on penalties after a 1-1 draw, and now face another one of South Africa's giants in the form of Sundowns.

Coach Owen da Gama has spoken in the last few days on what a tough place Makhulong Stadium is for visiting teams, and hopes his side can prove that again with the visit of the Brazilians.

The 2010 champions Bidvest Wits face a potentially tricky away day at Real Kings from the GladAfrica Championship, though they will fancy their chances of winning a semi-final spot.

Kings will be no pushovers, but Wits coach Gavin Hunt expects his star-studded squad to be too strong for the second-tier side.

There is also a Limpopo Derby as Black Leopards travel to Baroka FC, a clash between two sides at the wrong end of the premiership table.

Ironically, the teams will meet in Polokwane the week before in a league clash, while Leopards won their last visit to Baroka in January 2019.

The last of the quarterfinals sees second-tier TS Sporting host Bloemfontein Celtic.

The ties will be played on the weekend of 14 to 15 March, with the exact dates, venues and kick-off times to be revealed at a later stage.



Quarter-final draw:

TS Sporting vs Bloemfontein Celtic

Baroka FC vs Black Leopards

Real Kings vs Bidvest Wits

Highlands Park vs Mamelodi Sundowns
