Seven days after locking horns in the league, Free State Stars and Orlando Pirates will clash in the Nedbank Cup this evening.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 20h15.

These two sides met in the Absa Premiership last weekend, with Stars claiming a 3-2 win at Goble Park.

Ea Lla Koto booked their spot in the Last 16 after recording a 2-0 win over Highlands Park on home soil.

Kjell Jonevret's only win as Pirates coach came in the previous round, as they defeated ABC Motsepe League outfit EC Bees 3-1.

Stars will be without the services of Tamsanqa Teyise, who is serving a suspension for an accumulation of yellow cards.

Here's how they line up:

Stars: 1. Mafoumbi, 24. Tlhone, 21. Okumu, 19. Mbhele, 44. Mahamutsa, 26. Dlamini, 50. Vilakazi, 4. Makhaula, 23. Sekola, 11. Jantjie, 38. Anas.
