Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates will battle it out for a place in the semi-finals of the Nedbank Cup, when the two lock horns in their quarter-final clash at Loftus Stadium on Saturday night.

While goals from Lennox Bacela and Rooi Mahamutsa secured the Buccaneers passage into the last eight.
