Bafana Bafana midfielder Zungu is eager to win some silverware in his first season with the Portuguese side

Vitoria Guimaraes midfielder Bongani Zungu is set to face off against SL Benfica on Saturday in what has been deemed a dress rehearsal ahead of the Portuguese Cup final.

The Conquerors have been in impressive form this season and on top of securing qualification for the Europa League, they have earned the right to challenge for silverware.

A standout player of Guimaraes’ recent success has been the South African international. Despite Zungu being side sidelined for much of the first half of the season, he has been impressing of late. Most recently, he picked up the man of the match award in their 1-0 victory against Arouca on Sunday.

Speaking ahead of Saturday’s Portuguese Primeira Liga match against Benfica, Zungu stated that winning the Cup final will be the perfect end to a great season for the Guimaraes-based club.

“It would be the cherry on top of a great season to win the cup final‚” Zungu told Times Media.

“Benfica are a great side though and it is going to be really tough. We hope they are league champions this season and then might be still celebrating by the time the cup final is played on May 28,” he added.

“I will continue working hard to try and get us the trophy. I have been happy with my form of late‚ but want to finish the season strongly and winning the cup would be a dream,” Zungu concluded.
