When Arthur Zwane’s Kaizer Chiefs take on rival Orlando Pirates in the Nedbank Cup this afternoon, a number of important players are expected to be absent.
With kickoff set for 15:00, it’s make a break for both Soweto giants at FNB Stadium.
The Buccaneers will seek to reach their second consecutive cup final. The only other trophy this year has been won by Jose Riveiro (MTN8).
After a fairly unimpressive first season as manager of the Glamour Boys, Arthur Zwane’s Kaizer Chiefs will benefit greatly from winning the cup!
Today in the afternoon, Brandon Petersen, the goalie for Arthur Zwane’s team, will return from his suspension.
Due to injuries, Edmilson Dove, Keagan Dolly, and Nkosingiphile Ngcobo will all be absent.
Both Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana and Khama Billiat are questionable for today’s game.
Kaizer Chiefs head coach Arthur Zwane says history and forms mean nothing in the Soweto derby.
“You know football, you cannot rely more on what you have done in the past.” Kaizer Chiefs coach Arthur Zwane said as quoted by Citizen.
“Yes, we have won those games. It talks to the preparations, we got them right.
“The Pirates coach (Jose Riveiro) said that this time around, this will be a different Orlando Pirates team. But only time will tell.
“Pirates are doing well, and we will be coming into this game as underdogs. But Kaizer Chiefs will go to FNB Stadium with one thing on our mind, to go there and give our best and be victorious.
“We have been blowing hot and cold this season, and the players know what is expected of them.”
