Cape Town - Abia Nale singled Ajax Cape Towns' Riyaad Norodien and George Lebese of Kaizer Chiefs as the possible game-changers in the MTN8 final on Saturday.

Having played for both the Urban Warriors and AmaKhosi during his career, Nale believes the final showdown at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium this weekend will be too close to call.

Amakhosi are out to defend their title while Ajax are still looking to get over the sting of losing the Nedbank Cup final last season against Mamelodi Sundowns.

"Riyaad is very brave and can dictate in a game, Bantu Mzwakali can be very influential; He is one guy who can make the team play," Mpumalanga Black Aces veteran Nale told Soccer Laduma.

"From Chiefs, I've seen the highlights of this number 9 (Camaldine Abraw), I think he will be key to connect with George (Lebese).

"So far George has been doing what (former) coach (Stuart) Baxter used to like a lot. He and Mandla (Masango) excelled on it and now he is doing it on his own. George will play a very key role for Chiefs."
