South Africa and Malawi will be aiming to end their respective 2019 Cosafa Cup tournament campaigns with success in the Plate Final at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on Friday.

Kick-off is at 17h00 CAT.

The two nations qualified for the Plate final following wins over Uganda and Comoros respectively last time out.

Bafana Bafana fell into the Plate competitions having lost to Botswana on penalties in the quarterfinals of the Cup competition. Malawi suffered a similar fate, going down to Zambia in a penalty shoot-out having finished top of qualifying Group B.

South Africa will be eyeing a third successive Plate Final win. Bafana Bafana defeat Namibia 1-0 in 2017 before hammering Botswana 3-0 at the same stage 12 months ago.

Zambia take on Botswana in the Cup competition final on Saturday.
