Cape Town - Muhsin Ertugral, a former coach of both Kaizer Chiefs and Ajax Cape Town, believes Amakhosi will have the edge when the sides meet in the MTN8 final on Saturday.

The Mpumalanga Black Aces tactician admitted it is difficult to predict the outcome of the game due the quality on offer from both sides, but believes Chiefs will just shade it on the day and expects an exciting encounter.

"I won trophies with both teams and they are still in my heart," the Turkish manager told KickOff.

"It's difficult to predict the score for the game on Saturday. Both teams have quality players and these youngsters have developed Ajax into a good team. It is going to be interesting final.

"Chiefs have cup pedigree and the players know how to win cup finals. The Ajax defence is looking good at the moment with Anssi Jaakkola in goal.

"[Granwald] Scott to me is currently one of the best players in South Africa. They don't have best striking force in terms of scoring a number of goals, but they are going forward.

"Chiefs are vulnerable at the back, but they have a strong striking force," he concluded.

The game kicks-off at 15:00 on Saturday, September 19 at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.
