Johannesburg - Wits midfielder Sibusiso Vilakazi believes that Kaizer Chiefs are favourites to win their Nedbank Cup semi-final encounter.
According to the soccerladuma website, reacting to Monday’s draw that saw the Students being pitted against the
defending champions, Vilakazi said it would be very
difficult for Wits to beat Chiefs.
“It’s a tough draw for us. As defending champions, Chiefs will be
looking to defend their titles, so it’s really going to be difficult to
beat them,” said Vilakazi.
“As you know, Chiefs have always given us problems in cup games. They
seem to have our number when it comes to cup games, but I’m hoping that
we’ll beat them this time around.
“We have been doing well lately especially in the league, so I hope
that we’ll carry that momentum into this cup game against Chiefs,” added
Chiefs gave Wits a 3-0 drubbing when the two teams met in this
competition last season and the Students will be hoping to avoid the
repeat of that heavy loss.
The dates and venues for the Nedbank Cup semi-finals will be announced at a later stage.
