In fact, they have not played at home in the competition since a 2-0 semifinal victory over Baroka FC in 2016. The odds of that happening are incredible. Two of the matches were played as finals at neutral venues, both of which they won. TTM have two players in their squad who have been part of Nedbank Cup-winning sides in the past – defender Diamond Thopola was a winner with ‘the other’ TTM last season, before making the switch to the new version of the club for this campaign. Lucky Setelele was part of the TS Galaxy squad that lifted the trophy in 2019, stunning Kaizer Chiefs in the final, though he was not part of the matchday 18 on that occasion, having played in the earlier rounds. Of the eight remaining teams in the competition, SuperSport have had the best success rate at this stage, winning five of their previous six visits to the quarterfinals (83 per cent).
Bullish Citizens maintain undefeated record | SuperSportCape Town City FC defeated Maritzburg United 3-0 to remain top of the DStv Diski Challenge table after an unbeaten start to the campaign. The Citizens have now claimed four out of four in the league since the beginning of the season. The match had a slow start but The Citizens upped their tempo in the second half to prove that they were too good for Maritzburg United on the day. City are comfortably sitting on top of the Diski Challenge table with 12 points.
MAMELODI SUNDOWNS VS SUMMERFIELD DYNAMOSSaturday, 9 April – Loftus StadiumMamelodi Sundowns have been drawn against an ABC Motsepe League side for the second round in a row, but this time come up against an old foe in the opposite camp. Sundowns easily dispatched Mathaithai 6-0 in the last 16 – having beaten second-tier leaders Richards Bay 4-0 in the first round – and will expect another easy win against the KwaZulu-Natal third-tier outfit.

But the latter are led by Clinton Larsen, who has a decent record against Sundowns while in charge of Bloemfontein Celtic and Lamontville Golden Arrows, managing a number of wins, including a 5-0 success over Pitso Mosimane’s Brazilians while in charge of Phunya Sele Sele. That is the heaviest defeat of Mosimane’s coaching career, but not Larsen’s only tale of glory against The Brazilians. He is unbeaten against Sundowns in the Nedbank Cup.

... 0-0 with a stubborn Maritzburg United side away on 12
He has taken United FC, Chippa (twice) and second tier TS Galaxy to the semis, remarkably going on to lift the trophy with the latter when they stunned Chiefs in the final. Malesela has never lost a Nedbank Cup quarterfinal. Baroka’s only away victory in their last 15 outings on the road in all competitions came in the Nedbank Cup. They defeated Stellenbosch FC 1-0 in the last 32, before needing penalties to oust TS Galaxy in the last 16. Gallants have only lost one Nedbank Cup game in the nine that they have played to date. That came with a last-16 loss to Chippa United in 2019.
Their only other defeat was to Platinum Stars in a surprise 2-1 reversal in 2013. No player has scored more goals in the Nedbank Cup since the start of the 2020 competition than Sundowns forward Peter Shalulile, who is also closing in on the all-time record. The Namibia international has eight goals in his last eight games in the competition for Highlands Park and Sundowns, a remarkable run that leaves him three short of the all-time record set by former Brazilian Hlompho Kekana.
Statistical guides to the Nedbank Cup quarterfinals | SuperSportSuperSport. com provides a statistical guide to the quarterfinal clashes. TTM VS SUPERSPORT UNITEDFriday, 8 April – Thohoyandou Stadium SuperSport United’s proud record of never having lost to lower league opponents will be tested again when they face second-tier TTM, having already seen off GladAfrica Championship side Platinum City Rovers in the last round. It will be a first-ever meeting between the sides, as it should be remembered this is not the same TTM who lifted the trophy last year – that is Marumo Gallants. TTM have improved in recent weeks, having been stuck near the foot of the table and already ousted topflight opponents this season when they beat Lamontville Golden Arrows on penalties in the last 32. Quite remarkably, all 12 of SuperSport’s previous Nedbank Cup matches have been away from home … and they have been drawn on the road again.
Since then they are unbeaten in their last seven (W4 D3), and have also won all three penalty shootouts they have played in the competition. Baroka have a 50 per cent record in shootouts. They took Leopards to penalties in the semifinals of the 2011 Nedbank Cup, but ended up losing 3-1 as their fairytale run in the competition came to an end. They beat Hungry Lions in 2020 and lost to Cape Town All Stars in 2021, but levelled up the score from spot-kicks with a 5-3 success over TS Galaxy in the last 16 this year.
Gallants have won the only other quarterfinal fixture they played, which was a 2-0 success against Leopards last season. Gallants coach Dan Malesela has a remarkable record in the competition, having lost outright just three of the 20 Nedbank Cup games he has taken charge of, all with perhaps would be considered unfancied sides. He has coached in three semifinals, and missed out on the chance to make it four when he left Chippa United having guided the team to that stage in 2021.

He has met them twice before and bundled them out of the competition in the last 16 with Lamontville Golden Arrows in 2017 and then in the last 32 with Chippa United in 2019. He also led Celtic to the Telkom Knockout title in 2012 when they defeated Sundowns in the final. But Sundowns are unbeaten in their last 11 Nedbank Cup games, a record for the competition, and it would be among the biggest shocks in the history of South Africa’s FA Cup were they to lose. Sundowns have won 70 per cent of their Nedbank Cup quarterfinals, having reached this stage on 10 occasions since 2008. Four of those fixtures have been against Orlando Pirates, where they have won two and lost two.

Their only blemish came in 2014 when they lost 0-2 to Kaizer Chiefs, who they would go on to beat via penalties in 2017 to gain some revenge. There is every chance the tie will go to penalties. SuperSport won their first five shoot-outs in the Nedbank Cup since 2008, defeating Batau FC (2012), Moroka Swallows (2013), University of Pretoria (2016), Kaizer Chiefs and Chippa United (both 2017). But that incredible run came to an end when they were beaten by Bloemfontein Celtic in the first round in 2018, which was also their last shoot-out.
