But the Students had a surprise in store for them, especially because very few people expected Gavin Hunt to topple Steve Komphela.
A James Keene strike midway through the first half was enough to seal Wits' passage to the final, and the majority of Amakhosi fans were left with more questions than answers.
Chiefs rivals had a filled day after the final whistle.
Here's how Twitter reacted to the result which saw Amakhosi crash out of the competition.
It wasn't to be for our beloved Kaizer Chiefs and we thought we could play Polokwane City TKO final. Hard Luck— tumisho mashasha (@mtosport) November 18, 2017
