Fans will watch exciting Cup final - Nhlapo

SuperSport United defender Siyabonga Nhlapo is positive that the 2019 MTN8 Cup final will be an exciting event to watch this coming weekend.

The big Cup final is scheduled for Soweto’s Orlando Stadium on Saturday evening.

Kick-off is at 18:00.

Nhlapo, who was on SuperSport Television Show “Back Pages” last night, promised the local football fraternity a quality and entertaining football.

“This is going to be an exciting Cup final. We are playing against each other for the first time in local Cup final so fans will watch good football.  Most of all they will be entertained from start to finish.

Highlands Park are a good and competitive side it’s not a fluke that they are in the final.  I like the team spirit and the fight they put in their matches,” said the Matsatsantsa defender.

Interestingly, United and Highlands Park are going into this match following their league victories against AmaZulu and Polokwane City this past weekend respectively.

“To be honest, we are both going into this match highly motivated.  The wins certainly boosted our confidence building up to the Cup final,” said Nhlapo.

To get to the final stage of the lucrative competition, Matsatsantsa played difficult sides such as Bidvest Wits FC in the last eight and rivals Mamelodi Sundowns FC on two legs (semi-final).
