Mamelodi Sundowns will be heading into Nedbank Cup final clash against underdogs Bloemfontein Celtic, with the hope of clinching their third Silverware for 2019/2020 season.
The Tshwane Giants players couldn’t fully celebrate their ABSA Premiership silverware knowing they are facing Bloemfontein Celtic on this weekend finale, after finishing on top of the log. Fans can now afford to dream of completing a historic domestic treble, as they switch their focus to the Nedbank Cup.
In the hands of Pitso “Jingles” Mosimane, the man with an unquenchable thirst for trophies. The Brazilians will be full of belief and determination to deliver on the big stage once again. Sundowns go into the Final at Orlando Stadium with a hope to win their first Nedbank Cup Silverware since 2015. With 6 goals scored in their last 2 games, Pitso’s boys are firing from all cylinders just in time for this game.
It will come in handy when they take on Celtic, a side with a solid defensive unit getting passed their opponents defense is not an easy task. Both teams met 9 times and 6 of their games ended in draws after 90 minutes played.
After months of no football due to the lockdown, football returned, and the first task was a clash with Bidvest Wits at Orlando Stadium. It was under unfamiliar conditions as there were no fans allowed. The five-goal thriller needed a moment of beauty and Lyle Lakay delivered with the last kick of the game to send Masandawana to the final against Bloemfontein Celtics
Kick-off is at 20:00, at Orlando Stadium.
