JOHANNESBURG - Kaizer Chiefs showed that they belong in the final of the MTN8, after easing past Platinum Stars with a 3-0 (5-0 on aggregate) win at FNB Stadium in the second leg of their semi-final on Sunday afternoon.

After grabbing a brace of goals in the first leg at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium, George Maluleka was the first to find the net for the AmaKhosi this time round, before Reneilwe Letsholonyane and substitute Katlego Mphela added to the score line.

The match also saw a return from injury for star player Siphiwe Tshabalala, who came off the bench to nearly add another goal to Chiefs' tally with a his first kick.

Orlando Pirates come into the final on an equal high note after a 5-1 aggregate win over Bidvest Wits, with new signing Lehlohonolo Majoro announcing himself on the scene with a brace of his own during Saturday's 3-1 over the Clever Boys at Orlando Stadium.

The date of the final has been set for the 20September, although the venue has yet to be decided for what is expected to be an open and tightly contested Soweto Derby.
