MTN 8 semis set to thrill

Chiefs vs Platinum Stars

Kaizer Chiefs clash with Platinum Stars in MTN8 semi-final

by TINTSWALO BALOYI
JOHANNESBURG – THE Soweto giants, Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates, have avoided each other in the semifinals but still face stern tests in their quest to lift the MTN 8.

This follows a draw on Monday in which Pirates were drawn against stubborn Bidvest Wits in the first slot of the semifinal draw while MTN8 defending champions Platinum Stars will lock horns with Chiefs in another semifinal tie.

There had been a possibility of the Soweto pair meeting the semifinals of the cash-rich competition, which would have come hot on the heels of the Carling Black Label Cup final where Pirates won on penalties.

The semifinals of the R8 million winner-takes-all MTN-sponsored competition will be played on the weekend of 15-17 August.
