When These Two Giants Meet Its The Grass That Suffers!

This week I look at the big game of the weekend, Amakhosi versus The Brazilians. This fixture has never disappointed. The spectators are always happy after this one whether it’s a draw or there’s a winner. The football that these two giants dish out whenever they meet is phenomenal.

If one looks back at the finals between these two giants, you will agree with me when I say, whenever these two giants lock horns, it is the grass that suffers. Take a look at the 1994 BP Top 8 final, where Amakhosi edged The Brazilians by a narrow 3-2 score line. That was a humdinger of a game, an end to end affair with a bit of flair and goals.

Another finale that caught eyes of many between these two giants was the 1997 Rothmans Cup final. That was one of the greatest finals ever. That was the game that earned Raphael Chukwu, the Sundowns’ Nigerian striker much respect. After Chiefs scored in the first half of the game, Sundowns left it too late and equalized in the last minute of the game, through the Chukwu train. The game then went to penalties and again Amakhosi were victorious. Who can forget the recent Telokm Knock out final though, full of drama, with Amakhosi awarded two spot kicks and missing both of them. Hlompho Kekana running the engine of The Brazilians and ended up having his name on the score sheet. One thing is for sure is that we stand a very good chance of being entertained whenever these two teams clash. No one holds back and I’m sure this one will be no different.
