Kaizer Chiefs are set to welcome AmaZulu FC at FNB Stadium in an MTN8 semi-final, first-leg match on Sunday.

The Soweto giants will be banking on their home ground advantage, but they could be without several players due to injuries.

Sabelo Radebe and Happy Mashiane picked up knocks during Chiefs' Macufe Cup clash against Royal AM last weekend, while Khama Billiat has been nursing a knee injury.
