Starting XI: Chiefs v Pirates, Zinnbauer Returns

MTN8 Semi-Final

Teams: Kaizer Chiefs v Orlando Pirates

Date: 08 November 2020

Venue: FNB Stadium

Kaizer Chiefs have a mountain to climb when they face Orlando Pirates in an MTN8 semi-final, second-leg tie at FNB Stadium on Sunday.

Chiefs are looking to overturn a three-goal deficit after Pirates stormed to a 3-0 victory in the first leg at Orlando Stadium last weekend, thanks to goals from Zakhele Lepasa, Vincent Pule and Thembinkosi Lorch.

However, after his influential display, Lorch misses out this afternoon along  with last season's top scorer Gabadinho Mhango.

Josef Zinnbauer is back in charge of the side following his return to Germany for a family matter.

The Amakhosi have their own injury worries with last season's top goal-scorer Samir Nurkovic still out, although full-back Reeve Frosler returned to training on Friday and is back in the side.

The match gets underway at 15h00.

Here's how they line up:

Chiefs: 40. Akpeyi, 39. Frosler, 20. Sasman, 4. Cardoso, 3. Mathoho, 5. Akumu, 21. Manyama, 45. Blom, 8. Castro, 25. Parker, 11. Billiat.

Subs: 16. Khune, 6. Baccus, 18. Moleko, 37. Ngcobo, 20. Ngezana, 10. Ntshangase, 36. Ntiya-Ntiya, 7. Kambole, 47. Lesako.

Pirates: 31. Ofori, 14. Hlatshwayo, 5. Nyauza, Jooste, 23, Maela, 6. Motswhari, 15. Makaringe, 8. Monare, 45. Pule, 11. Hotto, 25. Lepasa.

Subs: 30. Sandilands, 44. Mabaso, 27. Dzvukamanja, 32. Mntambo, 29. Mako, 12. Makgaka, 8. Ndlovu, 4. Jele, 2. Monyane
