Sundowns have been drawn away against Mpumalanga Black Aces in the quarterfinals and Mphahlele has welcomed the draw.

“To be the best you have to beat the best. There’s no particular team that we would have preferred to face” said the versatile defender on the clubs website.

“Even if we were drawn against a team from the National First Division, it would have still been a tough draw because there are no small teams in this competition.”

The matches will be played in the weekend of 11th and 12th April but the PSL will release confirmed dates and venues.
