Both matches are delicately poised at 1-1 with Kaizer Chiefs at home to Bloemfontein Celtic in the first game on Saturday.

Siyanda Xulu (Chiefs) v Geofrey Massa (Celtic)

The Ugandan is quickly settling into life in the Free State and showed glimpses of what is to come against Orlando Pirates in midweek. Massa was a beast in the box giving the likes of Rooi Mahamutsa and Siyabonga Sangweni a torrid time. With Xulu still finding his feet at Amakhosi, the Celtic attack will fancy their chances of scoring.

Siphiwe Tshabalala (Chiefs) v Keagan Buchanan (Celtic)

Tshabalala has been in inspirational form since being handed the captaincy by new coach Steve Komphela and his midfield battle with emerging force Buchanan could go a long way towards deciding the tie. The latter has marshalled the Siwelele central areas well so far this term and curbing the Chiefs skipper will be key.

Tsepo Masilela (Chiefs) v Thapelo Morena (Celtic)

Morena has been a livewire for Celtic so far with his change of pace and ability to step on the gas causing problems for every defence he has come against so far. Masilela, meanwhile, will have to guard against the winger and at the same time may be needed to cover for some of the defenders inside him.
