JOHANNESBURG - Holders Kaizer Chiefs have beaten Bloemfontein Celtic to progress to the finals of the MTN8. A single goal from George Lebese in the first half sealed the victory for Amakhosi.

The score ended 2-1 on aggregate.

Celtic started like house on fire in the first 20 minutes of the game but their speed was cut by Lebese's strike minutes before the break.

Celtic goalkeeper Patrick Tignyemb kept the hopes of his team alive and produced multiple wonderful saves to keep the scoreline at 1-0.

Chiefs will now have to wait until to see who wins between Wits and Ajax Cape Town.

Good news for Coach Steve Komphela, who gets to take the team into the finals in less than 10 games in charge of the team.
