Nedbank Cup Last 32 draw: Chiefs, Pirates and Sundowns pitted against minnows

The draw for the 2017 Nedbank Cup Last 32 took place on Thursday and it saw the big guns avoid each other

SuperSport United will begin their title defence away to NFD title chasers Royal Eagles, while last year's finalist Orlando Pirates will travel to second division side EC Bees FC.

Record-holders Kaizer Chefs will visit NFD side Stellenbosch United. Mamemlodi Sundowns will host minnows Marvien United.

The round's stand-out tie is undoubtedly the KZN derby which will see Golden Arrows and Maritzburg United lock horns.

The other all-PSL showdown will see Highlands Park face Free State Stars

The first round clashes will be played on the first weekend of March. The dates, venues and kick-off times will be confirmed by the PSL cup committee in due course.
