The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has announced the Telkom Knockout Cup quarter-final draw, with Kaizer Chiefs set to face arch-rivals Orlando Pirates.

Following the completion of the Round of 16 on Tuesday night, the league's governing body conducted the draw for the next stage.

Resulting from the draw that was conducted at Sisa Dukashe Stadium, Amakhosi are set to host the Buccaneers, Mamelodi Sundowns will travel to Chippa United, and SuperSport United coach Kaitano Tembo will lead his troops at home against Golden Arrows.

On the other hand, Maritzburg United will welcome Highlands Park at Harry Gwala Stadium and the PSL will announce fixture dates, kick-off times and venues of the mouth-watering quarter-final clashes in due course.

The opening round of matches saw Bidvest Wits dispatched by the Team of Choice 3-2 via penalties on Friday.

As the action continued on Saturday, Polokwane City followed via a 1-0 loss at the hands of Abafana Bes'thende before Cape Town City lost 4-2 on penalties after extra time to Amakhosi at Cape Town Stadium.

On the same day, last season’s losing finalists the Buccaneers managed to secure their berth through a 1-0 win over Stellenbosch FC at Orlando Stadium.

In addition, the shocking result of the day came when reigning champions Baroka FC were downed by newly crowned MTN8 champions SuperSport United, 3-2 on penalties, in Tshwane on Saturday night.

With all eyes firmly set on the current PSL champions and AmaZulu at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Sunday afternoon, the Brazilians did not disappoint and claimed a 5-0 victory.

On the same afternoon, the Lions of the North welcomed Black Leopards in Tembisa and claimed a 6-5 win on penalties following a goalless stalemate.

Meanwhile, the final match of the opening round saw the Chilli Boys playing hosts to Bloemfontein Celtic in East London and a solitary strike courtesy of Lehlogonolo Masalesa was enough for the Chilli Boys.
