The Clever Boys taught Bloemfontein Celtic a lesson with a 3-0 win on Friday night which also marked Gavin Hunt’s first win as Wits coach.

AmaKhosi put their last season’s MTN 8 misery to bed with a 3-0 win over AmaTuks on Saturday night, and they are one of the favourites to lift this year’s trophy.

Orlando Pirates are away to Chiefs after beating SuperSport United 4-3 on penalties. The game between Bucs and Matsatsantsa ended 2-2 after extra time.

Platinum Stars are still not to be underestimated in this competition despite losing some of their top players including coach Cavin Johnson. They beat Free State Stars 3-0 to book their place in this year’s semi-finals.

The first leg of the semi-finals will be played on August 20 & 21 with the second leg scheduled for August 24 and 25. Venues are yet to be confirmed.
