This weekend we will see two experienced coaches battle it out for a spot in the semi-finals of the Nedbank Cup.
Stuart Baxter of SuperSport United will look on to progress and get the psychological advantage against his former club. Amakhosi, knowing that his coming from a demoralising defeat to his cross-towns rivals, Mamelodi Sundowns in the league. Therefore, the Brit will be looking to redeem himself and, at least, progress to the next round of the tournament.
Meanwhile, Steve Komphela is yet to win his first major trophy of his career and it looks like he is going to claim one this season. However, if he is to do that, he will first need to defeat a stubborn Baxter.
Furthermore, the two coaches will face each other the following week, in the Mbombela Stadium in the league, which means that the cup result will also have a huge effect on both teams, mentally, ahead of that game.
Having said that, in the battle between Baxter and Komphela, who will win?
