GALLERY: Big guns progress in Telkom Knockout


Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates, Mamelodi Sundowns and SuperSport United all ensured their passage to the quarterfinal round, which is likely to produce some mammoth clashes.

Chiefs, Pirates and Sundowns came out tops, with the latter having registered a 5-0 thrashing to AmaZulu on Sunday, while the two Soweto giants both edged Cape sides Cape Town City and Stellenbosch respectively.

SuperSport, meanwhile, eliminated defending champions Baroka as they aim towards a second cup title after lifting the MTN8 just a fortnight ago.

Maritzburg United arguably caused the biggest upset with their victory over Bidvest Wits on Friday night, while Golden Arrows and Highlands Park progressed ahead of Polokwane City and Black Leopards.

The draw for the quarterfinals is sure to spit out some enticing encounters on Tuesday evening, with Bloemfontein Celtic still set to visit Chippa United to battle for the final available spot in the next round.
