Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has cautioned other teams who are still to play Bidvest Wits not to underestimate the club. Mosimane had to pull out all the stops to beat Wits 3-2 during the Nedbank Cup semi-finals on Saturday at the Orlando Stadium.

The Kaizer Chiefs will take on the Sundowns at the same stadium on Wednesday as the ABSA Premiership restarts.

Mosimane says that despite being taken over by new management, The Students are still a force to be reckoned with.

"Bidvest Wits are a very good team, they are a strong team. You could see they never gave up. They don't want to die," Mosimane said after his side's win over Wits.
"We had to take three leads to win the match. They just came back. We say we finished it but these people came back. This is not a team that has been sold. This is not a team you say their future is no longer there at Wits. It's unbelievable.
"It's a good team, you could see they have a good coach. Gavin Hunt is a fighter you know, Gavin will never leave anything easy. We respect them.
"This is a warning to anybody to say, 'Hey, if you're still going to play Wits be very careful.' Don't think about Tshakhuma. They are alive and kicking. Their heartbeat is still there."

Earlier, reported that Kaizer Chiefs will play their remaining 2019/20 Absa Premiership home matches at Orlando Stadium in the Gauteng biologically safe environment (BSE). The stadium belongs to their arch-rivals Orlando Pirates.

The league leaders will share the venue with Chippa United. The venues were announced in a televised draw on Wednesday morning.

Amakhosi explained on their official Twitter handle that they'll not be able to use their home ground, FNB Stadium, as it will be an unfair advantage to other teams who have relocated to Gauteng for the remainder of the season.

"The PSL did a stadium draw just now (Wednesday) to determine which stadium will be used by which team. Since all games will be played in Gauteng, we cannot use FNB Stadium as it will be an unfair advantage since other teams cannot use their home grounds."

In other news, Lionel Messi and Gerard Pique unveiled FC Barcelona's 2020/21 away kit. The new Blaugrana away kit is predominantly black with golf finishes and it looks kind of familiar.

The club said in an official statement:

"'The colours are within' is the slogan chosen by FC Barcelona for the new 2020/21 away kit, which this year is black with gold details.
"The club chose this 'absence of colour' to show that Barca fans' heart are Blaugrana, no matter what is on the outside."

However, South Africans were quick to point out that Barcelona's new away kit looked a lot like the Kaizer Chiefs' 50th-anniversary jersey.
