Teams: Pretoria Callies v Chippa United
Date: 17 April 2021
Venue: Lucas Moripe Stadium
A spot in the final of the Nedbank Cup final will be at stake when Pretoria Callies host Chippa United on Saturday afternoon at Lucas Moripe Stadium.
The match will get underway at 15h00.
GladAfrica Championship side Callies were somewhat fortunate to meet teams from the same division en route to the semi-finals.
The Pretoria-based side edged Royal AM 1-0 in the first round and had penalty shootout wins over JDR Stars (after goalless draw in extra-time) and Cape Town All Stars (after 2-2 draw in extra-time).
However, the Romans parted ways with coach Sammy Troughton, who guided them to the semi-finals, after also winning them promotion and replaced him with Joel Masutha.
In so far as coaching changes are concerned, the Chilli Boys also parted company with Dan Malesela, who led the team to semi-finals and he was replaced by caretaker coach Siyabulela Gwambi.
Chippa got to this stage after beating Free State Stars on penalties following a 2-2 draw in extra-time in the first round, edged Cape Town City 2-1 in extra-time in the last 16 and narrowly beat Richards Bay 2-1 in the quarter-finals.
