AmaZulu are likely the underdogs in the battle, but they’ll be ready to surprise everyone and win it all. Usuthu are proven that they can be a headache for any club after defeating Cape Town City away from home in the quarter-finals.

Usuthu’s leadership have made it obvious that they want to compete for trophies, and this competition might be their opportunity to do so. Sundowns are the team to beat in the MTN8, since they are the defending champions, having ended a 14-year drought last season.

Their 2-0 victory over rivals SuperSport United in the last eight sends a strong message about their resolve to protect their title. Meanwhile, Pirates have held the top eight trophy aloft on ten occasions, with their most recent victory coming in 2020.

Pirates, like their other Soweto rivals, Chiefs, are keen for silverware, especially following a barren season last season. Coach Jose Riveiro was not well received by the club, with some supporters dismissing him as ‘another export’ upon his arrival. But if he wins the title and follows in the footsteps of his predecessor Josef Zinnbauer, he will have an opportunity to prove his critics wrong.
