Kaizer Chiefs and Stellenbosch completed the MTN 8 semi-final line-up as they joined Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates in the penultimate round.
Molefi Ntseki picked up the first win of his Kaizer Chiefs reign after they beat Cape Town City 2-1 at Athlone Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
The Citizens got off to a good start when Marc van Heerden (23′) gave them the lead midway through the first half, but Ashley Du Preez (36′) hit back for Amakhosi before Edson Castillo (90+3′) completed a dramatic comeback win at the death.
Later on in the evening, Stellenbosch reached the semi-finals for the first time thanks a 1-0 victory over SuperSport United after extra time at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.
