Betting Tips: First Round TKO Hits The Stage!
This week, the Telkom Knockout Challenge will take place as Polokwane City will host Ajax Cape Town. The home side has a deadly striker in Rodney Ramagalela who has been firing on all cylinders and they will be looking to him to win the game for Rise and Shine.
SuperSport United travel away as they face off against Bloemfontein Celtic in the first round of the TKO Challenge. Matsatsantsa are on a high after securing the MTN8 title and reaching the final of the CAF Confederation Cup. Celtic will have to pull out all the stops as they seek to get a positive result against Eric Tinkler’s men.
Bidvest Wits will battle out against Free State Stars on Saturday, October 28. The Students and Ea Lla Koto always have a tough encounter and this time it will be no different.

Bloemfontein Celtic v SuperSport United (Telkom Knockout)
League rankings: Bloemfontein Celtic 6th & SuperSport United 15th
Useful facts: Bloem Celtic, fresh from a defeat away from home in the league, will want to overcome a resilient SuperSport United side. Matsatsantsa a Pitori have done a lot of travelling in the past week, so it will be interesting to see how they will line up. They are gaining a reputation as the cup kings of South African football and it’s unthinkable that they would exit a cup competition in the Last 16, but in front of their home fans, Siwelele will be a hard nut to crack.

Bidvest Wits v Free State Stars (Telkom Knockout)
League rankings: Wits 14th & Free State Stars 7th
Useful facts: The Clever Boys face their hoodoo team in Free State Stars. They have struggled to get positive results against Ea Lla Koto over the years and one wonders if there will be a change in fortunes for this encounter. It promises to be a tight affair and should be won on guts, more than anything else.
