Shell Helix Cup
Teams: Kaizer Chiefs v Mamelodi Sundowns
Date: 21 July 2018
Venue: FNB Stadium
Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns will lock horns in the inaugural Shell Helix Ultra Cup at the FNB Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The match is scheduled to get underway at 15h00.
With the new season barely a few weeks away, the two teams will be fine-tuning their preparations in earnest.
Amakhosi have been relatively quiet in the market but hogged the headlines when they signed Khama Billiat, who made his debut in the Maize Cup final last weekend along with Virgil Vries and Letlhogonolo Mirwa.
The Glamour Boys also finally announced their new coach Giovanni Solinas, although he won't be on the bench this afternoon as he waits for his work permit.
On the other hand, the Brazilians have been hard at work as they were involved in the CAF Champions League.
Pitso Mosimane’s charges went down 1-0 to AS Togo-Port in Togo on Tuesday in the CAF Champions League match, leaving Masandawana bottom of the group after three matches.
Mosimane will have a chance to test out new signings including Andile Jali, Toni Silva, Jose Ali Meza and Lyle Lakay ahead of their second meeting with AS Togo-Port next Friday.
The Brazilians will be without 2017/18 PSL Footballer of the Season Percy Tau, who joined English Premier League side Brighton and Hove Albion.
