Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic beat Mamelodi Sundowns in the quarter-finals of the MTN 8 to reach the finals where they will play against defending champions Kaizer Chiefs.

Celtic captain Bevan Fransman told Sport24 that they don't fear Chiefs though they have respect for all the teams they go up against.

Phunya Sele Sele needed penalties to get past Sundowns, while Chiefs came back from two goals down to beat Maritzburg United 5-3 after extra time.

Fransman of course also played for Chiefs a decade ago, and said that while he doesn’t expect an easy game from his ex team, Celtic will be playing for the win.

"We don't fear Chiefs but we respect them," Fransman said.

"Just like Sundowns, and any other team, we respect our opposition but don't fear them.

"We will go into the encounter with only one thing on our mind and that is to win the game.

"They are the defending champions and they won't make things easy for us at all, but we are ready to go all the way into the final."
