OFFICIAL: Cape Town City and Kaizer Chiefs starting line-ups

The Amakhosi and Citizens have officially named their starting elevens for tonight's showdown at the Cape Town Stadium

Cape Town City have made a few changes to their starting eleven to face Kaizer Chiefs, while the latter have themselves changed their line-up.

Young goalkeeper Bruce Bvuma replaces the injured Itumeleng Khune in what will no doubt be a baptism of fire for him, while defender Daniel Cardoso replaces the suspended Lorenzo Gordinho.

Tsepo Masilela replaces Sibusiso Khumalo at left-back, with only Eric Mathoho and Ramahlwe Mphahlele retaining their spots from Saturday's Nedbank Cup defeat to SuperSport United.

In midfield, Zimbabwean Edmore Chirambadare returns to take the place of George Lebese and he will be assisted by Joseph Molangoane, George Maluleka and Willard Katsande.

Siphiwe Tshabalala and Bernard Parker continue to lead their attack.

City meanwhile welcomes back Mozambican defender Edmilson at left-back and at right-back Vincent Kobola also returns.
