The two sides will be eager to cap off what has been a contrasting season for both sides with victory in the Nedbank Cup final this weekend.
Chiefs haven’t won the knockout cup under the Nedbank Cup sponsorship and Khune believes this adds extra motivation to the tie for his side.
Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune expects a tough game against SuperSport United adding that the PSL encounter a week ago was a good test for either side.
“Obviously it was a good encounter [the 1-1 draw in the PSL]; it was a good test for us. We now know their weaknesses and strengths as much as they know our weaknesses and strengths, but for us it would be great to go out there and put smiles on our supporter’s faces,” said Khune.
“It is not going to be easy to win but we are preparing very well for that,” concluded Khune.
“It is going to be a tough game, I think if we can defend well and do our best as a unit, there is no reason why we can’t get a good result. We are going there as equals, whoever wants it more will get it deservedly,” said Erasmus.
“Obviously their possession game, their inter passing has been really good this season and their movement upfront has been really good and I think if we can just contain the pressure and do our best in attack and keep the ball going forward I think we can do well.”
Matsatsantsa veteran striker Sibusiso Zuma, who scored in the Nedbank Cup semifinal and in the last fixture against Chiefs, mirrored Erasmus thoughts.
“It seems like everyone thinks we are going to lose. I know Kaizer Chiefs are playing good football at the moment, they are a great team but we are champions so we are trying to defend this cup which I think is going to make this game a great game. I will be so happy if we win, we have to give the fans what they came for,” said Zuma.
