E Reng Moo!
The Nedbank Cup is reaching the business end and things could go any way right now! There is no clear favourite and fans are chipping in with who they think will take the trophy home. What do they say? Let's have a look.
The banter was relentless on the Soccer Laduma Facebook page as fans made their predictions. Chabi Chabalala hopes Benny McCarthy's Cape Town City will take the trophy but sees a potential threat in the way:
"I wish Benny could have it but with [Gavin] Hunt [Bidvest Wits] in the run, there is so much uncertainty, bra!"

For fans such as Lungelo B. Shangase, any other club can win the Nedbank Cup besides one in particular. Can you guess which one?
"Any team besides Kaizer Chiefs!"

Amakhosi are increasingly under pressure to win the cup as they have gone almost four years without a trophy – the worst trophy drought in their history. Mbusi Maphumulo seems confident this is the year the Glamour Boys end the drought:
"[This is] Kaizer Chiefs' year to take home some silverware."

Likewise, Mthandeni Mthabela seems hopeful that Chiefs will win the tournament. However, one club of the remaining eight unsettles the Soccer Laduma reader:
"Kaizer Chiefs [will take it], it's obvious. Wits must eliminate a threat first – Cape Town City."
