Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns engage in a titanic match in the MTN8 semifinals.

In the MTN8 semi-finals, Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns will face off, while Kaizer Chiefs and AmaZulu will do battle. Johannesburg

Following the Monday draw, Pirates will host Sundowns in the opening leg, while Chiefs will also host AmaZulu. The time and locations have not yet been made public.

Amakhosi has won 15 times, with their most recent win coming in 2014. They are the most successful team in the top-eight events.

Despite their uneven league play, they might win the MTN8 after only four games, placing pressure on new coach Arthur Zwane.

Despite the Chiefs’ lackluster performance against Stellenbosch, they may applaud goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune for his valiant efforts throughout penalty shootouts.

AmaZulu are most likely the underdogs in the race, but they’ll be ready to shock everyone and win.

Usuthu is shown that they can be a problem for any club after defeating Cape Town City away from home in the quarterfinal.

The leaders of Usuthu have made it obvious that they want to compete for trophies, and this tournament may be their opportunity to do so.

Given that they are the reigning champions after overcoming a 14-year drought last season, Sundowns are the side to defeat in the MTN8.

Their 2-0 victory against rival SuperSport United in the round of eight made a strong declaration about their resolve to retain their title.

Pirates, who have won the top eight trophy ten times total with their most recent victory being in 2020, have held it aloft on a regular basis.

Pirates are in dire need of trophies, much like their other Soweto rivals, Chiefs, who also had a disappointing season last year.

When coach Jose Riveiro first arrived, he wasn’t met with much enthusiasm by the supporters, who saw him as “just another export.”

But if he wins the title and emulates his predecessor Josef Zinnbauer, he will have an opportunity to disprove his critics.
