Kaizer Chiefs, who came from behind to beat Maritzburg United 2-1 for place in the semis, were drawn against their bitterest rivals – Orlando Pirates.

Meanwhile, defending champions – SuperSport United, who stunted newcomers Tshakhuma in the quarters, were paired with Bloemfontein Celtic, who edged out Mamelodi Sundowns 1-0 to progress.
