JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – THE draw for the MTN 8 semifinals has been conducted in Johannesburg.

Bloemfontein Celtic have been handed a tricky assignment against defending champions Kaizer Chiefs while a potential thriller is on the cards when Ajax Cape Town play Bidvest Wits.

The first leg will be played on August 15 and 16 while the second leg matches will be on the 29th and 30th.

There was more drama a day later as Chiefs survived a scare before knocking Maritzburg United 5-3 in extra time at First National Bank Stadium.

Celtic continued their newly-found dominance over big-spending Mamelodi Sundowns prevailing 4-2 on penalties after a one-all draw.
