Nedbank Cup results 2019/2020
One of the most shocking matches was between Cape Town City and Mbombela United. Cape Town City lost 1-0 so they failed to reach the quarterfinals what they managed last season. Kaizer Chiefs team prevented them from qualifying for the semifinals. Cape Town City was fortunate not to lose by two goals in 63 minutes. At that moment, United player Thulane Ndlela found his way to the goal. But it was offside so the judge canceled the goal. For the City team, there was a great danger of suffering a defeat as they experienced in 2017 after losing to third-team Acornbush United in the first round.
Although various formats have been used over the years, the entire tournament has always been based on the idea of giving the lower leagues a chance. Also, amateur teams to compete against upper league clubs. Who will stand out this year? Will this be a team with excellent soccer 10 results? Or maybe it will be a team that has only recently started climbing on betway South Africa? We’ll know soon.
