Starting XI: Chiefs v Baroka

Nedbank Cup
 
Teams: Kaizer Chiefs v Baroka FC
 
Date: 31 March 2018
 
Venue: Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium
 
Kaizer Chiefs will be looking to secure a spot in the Nedbank Cup semi-finals when they host Baroka FC at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Saturday evening.
 
The match is scheduled to get underway at 20h15.
 
Amakhosi are under tremendous pressure to deliver as the Nedbank Cup appears their last chance at silverware this campaign, barring a huge swing in the Absa Premiership title race.
 
Coach Steve Komphela, in particular, has not won any trophy for the Soweto giants as he reaches the few months of his three-year contract.
 
The Naturena outfit reached this stage of the competition after dispatching National First Division side Stellenbosch FC in the last 16.
 
Bakgaga enter into this clash with optimism to further entrench themselves as the giant killers of South African football.
 
In the 2010/11 edition of the Nedbank Cup, the then unknown third-tier side Baroka shocked the football fraternity after reaching the semi-finals at the expense of Chiefs after sensationally beating them 2-1 in the quarter-finals.
 
Coach MacDonald Makhubedu is yet to taste defeat since taking over from Kgoloko Thobejane, who was dismissed for misconduct.
 
The Limpopo-based outfit beat ABC Motsepe League side Steenberg United 2-0 in the last 16.
 
Here's how they line up:
 
Chiefs: 32. Khune, 4. Cardoso, 2. Mphahlele, 20. Hadebe, 3. Mathoho, 22. Zulu, 13. Katsande, 27. Ekstein, 14. Tshabalala, 8. Castro, 29. Moon,
