MTN8 head-to-head: Vilakazi vs Ngele

MTN8

With the first leg of the MTN 8 semi-final producing six goals, the second leg is sure to be a cracker.

Bidvest Wits need to win by 3-0 in order to advance to the Final, while Stars can go through with a draw but even a loss, by less than two goals, will see them go through the final.

Clever Boys captain Sibusiso Vilakazi is one of the best midfielders in the country, and will play an instrumental role in the midfield.

The 23-year-old remains the most talked about player at Wits, and head coach Gavin Hunt will hope Vilakazi bring his ‘A game’ to the match on Tuesday night.

Mogakolodi Ngele, meanwhile, had a dream start to his PSL career last season.

The Motswana put in seven assist for Dikwena last season, and remains a huge treat to any PSL team.

What makes Ngele stand out is that not only does he create goals but he can score them as well, and with two already to his name in the MTN8, he will be looking to continue his scoring form against Wits.
