French-based Bafana Bafana stars Lebogang Mothiba and Lebogang Phiri will go head-to-head in the final of the Coupe de la Ligue title on March 30.
Phiri, who turns out for Guingamp, helped his side rally from 2-0 down to claim a hard-fought 2-2 draw against Monaco in their Coupe de la Ligue semi-final tie before advancing to the final via a penalty shootout.
Mothiba on the other hand grabbed a vital brace for RC Strasbourg as they claimed a 3-2 win over Bordeaux in the second semi-final, to book their spot in a French cup final for the first time since 2005.
The Bafana duo will now go up against each other on March 30 at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy to determine which Lebo captures their first silverware of the season.
