JOHANNESBURG - Kaizer Chiefs defeated Platinum Stars 2-0 yesterday in their MTN8 semi-final 1st leg tie yesterday at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium.

Two goals from George Maluleka gave Chiefs the win over Stars.

Maluleka's brace of second-half goals were enough to separate the teams, who will meet for the second leg at FNB Stadium next week Sunday.

The winner of the tie will face either Bidvest Wits or Orlando Pirates in next month's final.

Meanwhile, Wits and Pirates go head to head in the first leg of the MTN 8 semi-final today at Bidvest Stadium.

The Clever Boys' coach Gavin Hunt says his side won't be too aggressive up front.

Pirates coach Vladimir Vermezovic has also backed this two-legged game to go the full distance as both sides fight it out to reach the first cup final of the season.
