Marumo Gallants will go head to head with fellow Premier Soccer League side Baroka FC in the Nedbank Cup quarter-final match at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday.

Kick-off is at 15h00 CAT.

Bahlabane Ba Ntwa secured their place in this round of the South African FA Cup after defeating eight-time champions Orlando Pirates at the same venue last month.

The Limpopo-based side emerged 5-4 winners on penalties following a 1-1 draw in a Round of 16 clash on March 9 as they look to go all the away and successfully defend the Nedbank Cup.

However, the win over Pirates remains Gallants’ last victory across all competitions as they are winless in their last three matches.

This winless run includes successive defeats to Cape Town City and Royal AM, and a draw against Chippa United in the DStv Premiership.

Meanwhile, Baroka booked the spot in this stage of the lucrative tournament after defeating fellow PSL side TS Galaxy at the Peter Mokaba Stadium last month.

Bakgaga Ba Mphahlele defeated Galaxy 5-3 on penalties following a 1-1 draw in the Round of 16 match on March 13 as they look to reach the semi-finals for the first time since 2016.

The victory over Galaxy made it two wins in a row for Bakgaga Ba Mphahlele across all competitions, but the team has been struggling since then.

The Limpopo-based side has since lost two matches in a row in the DStv Premiership – recording defeats against Cape Town City and AmaZulu FC.
