With MTN's showcase of their quarter-final fixtures, we now feel as if the Cup season is round the corner

The pick of the fixtures is Orlando Pirates against SuperSport United, teams who've taken one another on in many Cup games in recent times. 

This would be a tricky test for Bucs who are hoping to win some silverware this season. Check out how Happy Jele and Dean Furman sized one another up in the press photos for that showdown.

The other fixtures pitted up Mamelodi Sundowns against Orlando Pirates, Kaizer Chiefs against Free State Stars and Maritzburg United against Cape Town City.

The South African MTN8 season begins with these fixtures on the following weekend, but the PSL campaign starts this weekend.
