Cape Town - The draw for the quarter-finals of the Telkom Knockout served up an enticing Tshwane derby between Mamelodi Sundowns and SuperSport United.
The TKO holders were paired with their local rivals just minutes after defeating Polokwane City 2-0 in the Round of 16 at the Lucas Moripe Stadium, where the draw took place live after the post-match interviews.
Kaizer Chiefs, last year's beaten finalists, were drawn against Free State Stars, with their last-eight tie to be played at the FNB Stadium.
Meanwhile, Orlando Pirates will host newcomers Highlands Park at the Orlando Stadium, while Baroka FC and Cape Town City will square off at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium.
The draw saw the four highest ranked sides based on last season’s league table in one pot, with the remaining four teams in another.
The quarter-final games are scheduled to be played on the weekend of November 5/6, with the exact dates and kick-off times still to be announced.
