Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune believes that they have a slight advantage over Bloemfontein Celtic.

Amakhosi take on Celtic at the FNB Stadium on Saturday, August 29 in the second leg of the MTN8 semi-final.

Khune says that any opposition that visits Soccer City are aware as to what can happen when they take on the Glamour Boys.

“Teams know what happen when they visit FNB,” said Khune at the MTN 8 Cup Press Conference.

“We played Celtic away and we recovered after they scored early in the game.”

Chiefs conceded four goals in the tournament so far and hope that they can seal things at the back this weekend.

“Last season we didn’t concede goals at this stage of the competition,” said the ‘keeper.

“We can improve on that and we will start to keep clean sheets from this Saturday.

“We are in this together and as a team we have a responsibility to keep clean sheets. It is work in progress.”

The aggregate score is 1 - 1 following the 1st Leg played last week at the Free State Stadium.

Bernard Parker scored through a fantastic scorcher to give Chiefs an advantage of an away goal.

“We have a slight advantage going to the second leg,” concluded Khune.

Kick-off is at 20:15.
