The Telkom Knockout quarter-final draw has thrown up a monster tie between Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates, and it’s the Amakhosi who will be happier if history is anything to go by.
Take a little trip down memory lane in the gallery above!
Chiefs and Pirates will lock horns on November 2 or 3 as the Soweto giants battle it out for a place in the last four of this year’s TKO tournament, and last year’s clash between the two will no doubt be fresh in the mind as the duo seek to end their respective trophy droughts.
Since the tournament began under it’s current name back in 2006, South Africa’s two biggest clubs have met on just four occasions, and it’s the Glamour Boys that have the upper hand having won three of them.
Of the four meetings, two have them have gone to a penalty shootout (both of which have been won by Chiefs), while Pirates’ only victory was the one that they achieved on the way to last year’s final before being beaten by Baroka.
Despite their poor record in this tournament though, Bucs will be buoyed by their recent form over their bitter rivals having had their number in recent years – they last lost against Chiefs in 2015 when they were beaten 6-5 on penalties, coincidentally in the TKO.
Who do you think will be victorious in this TKO quarter-final Soweto Derby?
