Mamelodi Sundowns and Royal AM were pitted against each other during the Nedbank Cup semi-final draw on Sunday.

This will be a battle between the two top teams on the Premier Soccer League standings at the moment after they won their quarter-final matches. 

Sundowns reached this stage of the South African FA Cup after securing an emphatic 5-0 win over ABC Motsepe League side Summerfield Dynamos at Loftus Versfeld Stadium on Saturday night.

While Royal AM sneaked into the semi-finals after defeating National First Division outfit University of Pretoria 3-2 at Chatsworth Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Sundowns edged out Royal AM 3-2 in the first round league encounter at Loftus Versfeld Stadium in December last year and Thwihli Thwahla will be seeking revenge.

Meanwhile, the other semi-final tie will feature Marumo Gallants and Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila in the Limpopo Derby clash.

Gallants progressed to this round after overcoming their Limpopo rivals, Baroka FC 1-0 at Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

While Tshakhuma caused an upset when they defeated five-time Nedbank Cup champions SuperSport United 3-2 in extra-time at Thohoyandou Stadium on Friday night.

This will be the first-ever meeting between the two teams with Tshakhuma currently campaigning in the NFD.

The PSL will announce the dates and kick-off times for the two semi-final matches in due course.
