This weekend saw the final games of the 2017/18 Absa Premiership season played out across the country, with Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates securing CAF Champions League football while Kaizer Chiefs clinched a spot in the CAF Confederation Cup.
SuperSport United, who won the MTN8 last season, will be unable to defend their title after Matsatsantsa finished 11th in the league as they made a late surge away from the relegation zone with a win over Baroka.
With the final league positions all confirmed, the eight clubs now know who stands between them and a spot in the semi-finals of the competition when we get underway in a few months’ time.
Sundowns will take on AmaZulu, Pirates face Golden Arrows, Chiefs get underway against Free State Stars and it is Maritzburg United against Cape Town City as fourth plays fifth.
The rules state that the teams who finished in the top four will have home advantage in the quarterfinals of the competition, with R8m going to the winner of the tournament.
