thumbnail Hello,

The eight team tournament has reached the final stage, and the Premier Soccer League has decided that the Soweto derby encounter between Bucs and Amakhosi will be at FNB Stadium

The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has announced the FNB Stadium as the venue for the MTN8 Final between Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates on September 10.

Pirates advanced to the MTN8 Final after beating Mamelodi Sundowns 4-3 on aggregate while Chiefs edged out Ajax Cape Town on the away goals rule after drawing 1-1 in Cape Town on Saturday, after a goalless first leg, to set up the clash with rivals Pirates at the FNB Stadium.

Amakhosi beat the Mighty Buccaneers 3-0 in the Telkom Knockout Cup at the same venue last season.

Meanwhile Orlando Pirates coach Julio Leal says past results will not count for nothing when his team plays Kaizer Chiefs in the Final on September 10.

Pirates have already beaten Chiefs twice in pre-season tournaments and the coach continues to have faith on his squad.

"I believe past results, statistics and one game is a different history. We know that we have won two games against them but it was not an official game and we cannot count on that.

"I have got a professional squad which is very committed with the spirit of togetherness and which has the same capacity to achieve the same feat as last season where we won three trophies," said Leal, according to Kickoff.com.
