The Amakhosi defeated Lidoda Duvha 1-0 at Peter Mokaba Stadium in a first round match in the 2014 Nedbank Cup, with Zimbabwean striker Knowledge Musona scoring the decisive goal.

It was the fourth cup match between the teams, and Chiefs boast a 100 percent record in this regard. The Soweto side’s other three cup wins over Leopards arrived in the 2004 SAA Supa8, 2006 Absa Cup and 2012 Nedbank Cup.

In all, the teams have met in 22 league and cup matches since 2001/02. The Amakhosi have claimed 13 wins compared to five for Lidoda Duvha, while just four matches have been drawn.

Chiefs earned their place in the last 16 of this year’s Nedbank Cup with a 4-0 win over lower league side Edu Sports FC, while Leopards were equally emphatic in registering an impressive 6-2 victory over fellow NFD side FC Cape Town.

The Amakhosi come into the game having returned to winning form with a 3-0 defeat of Soweto rivals Moroka Swallows in a midweek league match.

Lidoda Duvha, meanwhile, are unbeaten in 2015, though they were held 1-1 in a NFD match with Maluti FET College last weekend.

Kick-off is at 17:30 on Saturday, March 21.
