While the two Gauteng giants were not pitted against each other in this round, there are still some mouth-watering clashes to look forward to
Coach Pitso Mosimane would be pleased that his side has been drawn against a smaller team after making it public that he also wants his charges to have it easy going forward.
His comments were seen as a jab at Amakhosi who had been handed easy draws in the past, including in the previous edition.
Sundowns will play Vaal University of Technology (VUT) while Amakhosi have a tricky encounter away to Highlands Park.
VUT stunned Golden Arrows this past weekend, beating Steve Komphela’s men 6-5 on penalties and will certainly be one of the teams to watch this season.
The same can be said about Mbombela United who ousted Cape Town City on Sunday afternoon.
Mbombela United will face Real Kings for a place in the quarter-finals.
The PSL will release venues, dates and kick-off times for the fixtures in due course.
