Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Giovanni Solinas says he is well aware that his side cannot afford to underestimate Black Leopards when the two teams clash on Sunday.

Amakhosi will host the Limpopo outfit at FNB Stadium in the Telkom Knockout last-16 tie, as the Italian attempts to win his first major trophy with the Glamour Boys.

Chiefs will be looking to bounce back from a surprise defeat to Polokwane City in their last competitive match.

"We have to respect Leopards. Myself, I have big respect for Black Leopards. I don't underestimate Black Leopards," Solinas told KickOff website.

"They started the league well. They are a good team. They try to play football.

"It's not going to be an easy game for us. It's a tough game. I respect this team.

"We are trying to prepare for this game very well because Black Leopards is a dangerous team."

Kick-off is at 15:30.
