JOHANNESBURG - Bidvest Wits are through to the MTN8 semi-finals after a 4-3 penalty shootout win over Bloemfontein Celtic on Friday evening. The match ended 0-0 after regulation time.

Limbikani Mzava missed the decisive penalty for Celtic after a tense shootout, following on from a hard-fought 120 minutes of Cup action.

Execution was poor from both teams and after a good run by Lerato Lamola was squandered, the match looked destined for extra time.

The action continues on Saturday afternoon as Mamelodi Sundowns take on the reigning champions Platinum Stars. Later Orlando Pirates play Supersport United while on Sunday Kaizer Chiefs meet with Black Aces.
