Baroka, who are set to meet Bidvest Wits in the other semis, shocked Mamelodi Sundowns last Saturday afternoon.
Phakaaathi looks at five talking points from the Telkom Knockout this weekend:
- Mphahlele scores a cracker for Chiefs
Kaizer Chiefs defender Ramahlwe Mphahlele scored what is potential a goal of the season when his side knocked SuperSport United out of the Telkom Knockout on Sunday afternoon. Mphahlele’s goal was enough for Chiefs to win 1-0 over Matsatsantsa.
- Baroka assistant throws his name in the hat
With rumours of Baroka searching for a new coach to replace Wedson Nyirenda, his assistant Thoka Matsemela has nominated himself as his potential replacement by guiding Baroka past Sundowns.
- Baroka stun Sundowns
Baroka pulled off the upset of the tournament by dumping Mamelodi Sundowns out of the Telkom Knockout last Saturday.
- Another Soweto derby is on the cards
Chiefs and Pirates will meet again in the semi-finals of the Telkom Knockout. The two Soweto giants met recently where Pirates beat kaizer Chiefs 2-1 at the FNB Stadium.
- Referee Victor Gomez goes down under a challenge
Referee Victor Gomez supplied a comic relief of the game when he fell down after a Baroka player stepped on him accidentally. Fans then asked for him to be substituted.
