Nedbank Cup Final Starting XI: Celtic v Sundowns

Nedbank Cup Final

Teams: Bloemfontein Celtic v Mamelodi Sundowns

Date: 12 September 2020

Venue: Orlando Stadium

Mamelodi Sundowns will be chasing a domestic treble when they clash with Bloemfontein Celtic in the Nedbank Cup final on Saturday evening.

The match will get underway at 20h00.

Sundowns were crowned Absa Premiership champions for a third season running last weekend and have a chance of completing a domestic treble after also winning the Telkom Knockout in December last year.

Pitso Mosimane's charges booked a spot in the final of this tournament after edging Bidvest Wits in a five-goal thriller courtesy of a stoppage time free-kick from Lyle Lakay a month ago.

The Brazilians have won this tournament on four occasions in different guises, the last of which was in 2015 after beating Ajax Cape Town on penalties in the final.

Siwelele on the other hand, will be making their first appearance in the final with Nedbank as sponsors, with their only triumph in the national cup coming back in 1985 when it was still known as the Mainstay Cup.

John Maduka's troops reached this stage of the tournament after thrashing Baroka FC 3-0 a month ago at Orlando Stadium.

Celtic last won a major trophy in 2012 after clinching the Telkom Knockout thanks to a controversial 1-0 win over Sundowns in the final.

Celtic: 31. Chaine, 13. Letsoalo, 3. Mahashe, 13. Luthuli, 35. Baloyi, 25. Chabalala, 5. Letlabika, 34. Fikizolo, 8. Phalane, 10. Mabena, 26. Ngobeni
