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
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
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.
