BANTU must go through reigning LNIG Top8 champions LDF in the semi-finals of the competition on 4 April 2020 at Setsoto Stadium in their bid to win their first trophy this season.

Lazola Jokojokwana’s brace and a lone goal by Lehlohonolo Fothoane at Maputsoe DIFA Ground on Sunday saw Bantu joining LDF, LMPS and LCS in the semifinals. Mongezi Mologovane and Khubetsoana Kamela scored for Kick4Life.

A Matšo Matebele won the two-legged quarterfinal on a 7-3 aggregate after beating Kick4Life 4-1 in the first leg at Setsoto Stadium.

In the first in Maputsoe, LCS beat Liphakoe 2-0. Makara Ntaitsane and Mark Tahayim were on target for the Mpitsa Marai side. LCS proceeded on a 3-1 aggregate having drawn one-all in the first leg.

On Saturday, Matlama and Lioli were handed shock defeats being knocked out by LMPS and LDF respectively.

After losing the first leg 0-1, Matlama failed to break the stubborn LMPS defence on Saturday at Setsoto Stadium and the game ended goalless.

The result earned LMPS a spot in the semis on a 1-0 aggregate.

LDF beat Lioli 1-0 to advance to the semis courtesy of a Mojela Letsie goal.

The two sides had drawn one-all in the first leg in Maputsoe a fortnight ago. The win helped LDF advance to the semifinals on a 2-1 aggregate.

Both LMPS and LCS will be hoping to come out tops when they clash in the semis on 4 April.
