Starting XI: AmaZulu v CT City

AmaZulu coach Benni McCarthy will come up against his former employers when his AmaZulu side take on Cape Town City in the MTN8 quarter-final on Sunday evening.

MTN8

Teams: AmaZulu v Cape Town City

Date: 15 August 2021

Venue: Moses Mabhida Stadium

Time: 18h00

McCarthy will be eyeing his first silverware at the club after guiding the side to a second-place finish in the DStv Premiership, despite joining the team mid-way through the 2020/21 season.

McCarthy has already won this tournament as coach of the Citizens in 2018 and has also won this competition as a player for Orlando Pirates in 2011.

On the other hand, City would have been disappointed with their campaign last term after finishing in seventh place in the DStv Premiership, with coach Eric Tinkler re-appointed in the last few games of the 2020/21 season.

The Citizens, who have won this tournament once under McCarthy, were knocked out at this stage last season by eventual winners Pirates.

Tinkler has also won this tournament with SuperSport United in 2017 as a coach, shortly after leaving the Mother City side in his first stint.

Here's how they start:

AmaZulu: Mothwa, Sikhakhane, Zulu, Xoki, Mgwazela, Makhaula Sithebe, Buchanan, Majoro, Memela, Mulenga.

Subs: Mzimela, Moleko, Khumalo, Kunene, Moremi, Maduna, Mlambo, Mthembu, Ntuli.

City: Hugo, Mkhize, Fielies, Mobara, Mashego, Mokeke,  Mdantsane, Makola,  Martin, Ralani, Mayo.
