Ace v Billiat – Who’ll Boss It?

This weekend Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates lock horns in what is sure to be a cracking Nedbank Cup quarterfinal, but who will take centre stage?

Manyisa has been a central cog in the Buccaneer motor for a long time now, playing a vital role in their impressive CAF Champions League campaign as well as their march on the Telkom Knockout and MTN8 finals.

Meanwhile, Billiat has had a fantastic debut season with Matsatsantsa, proving many of his critics wrong by slotting seamlessly into life at Chloorkop since his move there from Ajax Cape Town.

‘Ace’, 25, has managed to grab four goals for Pirates in the PSL this season, securing two more in the Telkom Knockout, and has been a pivot in the heart of their midfield.

Billiat, 23, on the other hand, has not only scored six goals in all competitions, he’s also got seven assists in the league, consistently creating a number of chances for his teammates.

One major difference between the two players is that Biliat has had a season hampered by injuries, while Manyisa has been a constant in the Pirates side throughout all of their cup campaigns, something that may have taken it’s toll on him.

On Saturday night it will be one against the other as the two sides compete for a place in the last four and the chance to go one game closer to the Nedbank Cup title.
