THE NEDBANK Cup last 32 draw was held in Sandton on Wednesday and while the big guns by and large avoided each other, there were still some interesting draws.

Kaizer Chiefs have been drawn to play against TS Galaxy in a repeat of the 2018 final that produced one of the biggest shocks in South African football.

Galaxy, who were playing in the Glad Africa Championship at the time, eliminated Chiefs.

Benni McCarthy’s AmaZulu will do battle with Orlando Pirates while Maritzburg United will host SuperSport United.

Tournament favourites Sundowns will face off against Richards Bay FC, the same side that eliminated Kaizer Chiefs from the competition last season.

In another interesting encounter, DSTV Premiership high-flyers Royal AM square off against the attack-minded Cape Town City.
