Marumo Gallants will be eyeing a second consecutive Nedbank Cup final when they host Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila on Friday evening at Thohoyandou Stadium.
Teams: Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila v Marumo Gallants
Date: 28 April 2022
Venue: Thohoyandou Stadium
Gallants have been off form in the league but they will be motivated to get a chance to defend the cup they won under the TTM name before their rebranding in the off-season.
Bahlabane Ba Ntwa reached this stage of the tournament after edging Baroka 1-0 in another Limpopo derby in the quarter-finals, which is their only victory in their last six matches in all competitions.
Their neighbours, Tshakhuma, meanwhile, are struggling in the GladAfrica Championship, although they eased their relegation worries with a 3-2 win over Jomo Cosmos over the weekend, which pulled them four points clear of danger, with three matches remaining.
Vhadau Vha Damani made it thus far after upsetting SuperSport United 3-2 in extra-time in the quarter-finals.
The winner of the tie will face either Mamelodi Sundowns or Royal AM in the final.
