Cape Town - All 16 Absa Premiership teams will be back in action from this Friday as they face each other in the 2019 Telkom Knockout.

Kaizer Chiefs were drawn against tough opponents Cape Town City in the last 16 with the clash taking place on Saturday, October 19 at Cape Town Stadium.

"We are looking forward to going back to Cape Town to face Cape Town City. They are a strong side, but we managed to beat them last month in their backyard," said Amakhosi midfielder Kearyn Baccus as quoted by the club's website.

Baccus scored his first goal for Chiefs in the league match played at Newlands Stadium. His goal came in the 83rd minute of the game to seal a 2-1 victory and collect three points over the Citizens.

"I'm relishing the prospect of playing my first cup game in South Africa," adds Baccus.

"We would like to win everything on offer this season. We will work hard to achieve this dream."

Another goal scorer in that match against City was Daniel Cardoso who says he loves playing in Cape Town because he’s scored a few goals in the Mother City.

His goal was in August, an equaliser in the 76th minute after the home team took the lead early in the first half.

The defender says he is looking forward to meeting Benni McCarthy’s team and proceeding to the last 8 of the Telkom Knockout competition.

Amakhosi have won the Telkom Knockout competition a record 13 times with the last win coming in 2010. Chiefs last reached the finals in 2015.

Meanwhile, the medical team has confirmed that a number of players who were out with injury are expected to be available for selection for Saturday’s match.

George Maluleka, Samir Nurkovic, Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya and Reeve Frosler are believed to be ready for action again.

Saturday’s match kicks off at 15:00.
