Good evening and welcome to our live coverage of the 2017 MTN8 quarterfinal clash between Kaizer Chiefs and SuperSport United from the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.

The two club's will be aiming to join Bidvest Wits and Cape Town City in the final four, with Mamelodi Sundowns and Maritzburg United to round off the weekend's round of fixtures on Sunday.

Match commentary (As It Happened):

All times CAT

90+5' Full-Time: Kaizer Chiefs 0-1 SuperSport United (Jeremy Brockie 6')

88' Aubrey Modiba the next to go into the referee's book.

86' Into the final few minutes of regulation time we go. SuperSport happy to sit back and absorb constant Chiefs pressure, will they be able to hold on?

82' Ramahlwe Mphahlele makes way for Bhongolwethu Jayiya - the former Cape Town City man on to make his debut.

80' Clayton Daniels makes way for former Kaizer Chiefs captain Tefu Mashamaite

75' WOODWORK! For the third time in the match, Kaizer Chiefs have seen the ball rattle the frame of the goal with Hendrick Ekstein's shot hitting the crossbar.

73' Bernard Parker OUT, Joseph Malongoane IN for Kaizer Chiefs.

68' Dove Wome makes way for Siyabonga Nhlapo

67' Yellow card for Katsande who is still fuming from that challenge by Dean Furman.

61' Yellow card for Dean Furman following a challenge on Willard Katsande

60' Hour played at the Moses Mabhida Stadium - SuperSport United still holding onto a narrow lead as things start to get heated between the two sides.

55' POST! Bernard Parker's header bounces off the woodwork before Grant Kekana clears off the line. All happening.

52' Lucky escape for Itumeleng Khune who made a hash of his attempted clearance, Erick Mathoho gets back well to clear Bradley Grobler's shot from bouncing into the back of the net.

50' Good start to the half by the visitors - as in the first - they are the one's making early inroads.

46' Second half is underway in Durban, SuperSport hold a slender lead thanks to Jeremy Brockie.

46' Cole Alexander makes way for Thuso Phala.

45+4' Half-Time: Kaizer Chiefs 0-1 SuperSport United

43' Glamour Boys all over their opponents as we enter the final few minutes of the first-half; just can't find that killer blow (deja vu really).

35' SAVE! Excellent stop by Ronwen Williams to keep our Bernard Parker's bullet from the edge of the area. Amakhosi on top, but behind.

33' Ronwen Williams escapes from what would have been an embarrassing moment. Amakhosi closing down their opponents in frantic fashion as they look for the equaliser.

29' Bradley Grobler goes into the referee's book. Real strikers challenge by the SuperSport United man who tracked back well into his own half. Matsatsantsa working hard.

23' POST! Siphiwe Tshabalala's deflected effort canon's off the woodwork. Best chance of the match for the Amakhosi.

19' Bernard Parker gets in behind the SuperSport United defence and tries to pick out Gustavo Paez, but his cross goes out of play.

14' Chiefs, though, have to be very wary of the counter-attack. Ronwen Williams quick to release the ball to the SuperSport attackers on transition.

12' Kaizer Chiefs looking for a way back into the clash, but SuperSport survive a spell of Amakhosi pressure.

6' GOAL! Jeremy Brockie! SuperSport United hit the front in Durban following a quick counter-attack, Grobler with a delightful pass, but Brockie still had a lot to do. He cuts in field and fires past Khune! Eric Tinkler's impact immediately evident.

3' Good turnout in Durban at a Stadium where both teams have tasted recent cup success. Chiefs have a lot of fans in KZN.

1' Kick-off in Durban!

Kaizer Chiefs: Khune; Mphahlele, Gordinho, Mathoho, Masilela - Maluleka, Katsande, Ekstein, Tshabalala - Parker, Paez
