Two Soweto giants met in the semifinals of last year’s tournament, a game that was won 2-1 by the Buccaneers, as they both looked to end their long-standing trophy droughts, however there was a shock in the final as the Buccaneers were beaten via a penalty shootout by Baroka.

Now, with Chiefs finishing outside the top eight in the 2018/19 season, they are one of the unseeded teams for Tuesday night’s quarter-final draw, while their rivals are among the seeded teams – Mamelodi Sundowns, Highlands Park and SuperSport United.

The league explained the rules regarding the seeding in a statement today saying, “Clubs that achieved highest four (4) positions in the Absa Premiership 2018/19 season will be seeded while the rest will be unseeded. Seeded clubs cannot play each other.”

Fans will be waiting with bated breath for Tuesday’s draw after Bloemfontein Celtic take on Chippa United, though supporters of both clubs are likely to be eager to meet in the final of the competition if possible, to add to the drama of the occasion.
