The Calm Before The Storm – Reader’s Voice

South Africa will come to a standstill when its two biggest stars lock horns at Durban's Moses Mabhida Stadium this Saturday afternoon in a Telkom Knockout quarter finals encounter.

The draw has pitted Soweto giants, Kaizer Chiefs against bitter rivals Orlando Pirates. Soweto derby will now play in two consecutive weekends given the two sides still have a date on the 9th of November, this time around in a league clash. With the two bulls from Soweto enduring trophy drought, this TKO title means everything to the both of them but one will bite the dust.

This is the biggest rivalry in our domestic front. The game was moved to the Port City to accommodate the Soweto Comrades Marathon that will take place on the 3rd of November at the Calabash. Sowetans are indeed sporting people, their two football clubs will be away in Durban, but people at home will be preparing to take to the road in the Comrades Marathon.

Both sets of fans will demand that their teams deliver them the post-match bragging rights. Those who back these two giants know only too well its importance. Some might say the Soweto derby has lost its spark and there is no derby fever leading to this gigantic rivalry but the manner which tickets flew off the shelves should tell how important this clash is to the football lovers.

Ironically, the last time Amakhosi and Bucs met at Mabhida, was in the semi-finals of the Telkom Knockout which ended in a 2-1 victory to Pirates.
