As league comes back.
The football Air is stirred and howling as weekend approaches and after the international break, Zambian flag bearers will be called to duty with places in the group stages of both the Confederation and Champions League at stake.
Crunch clash in Tanzania
Zesco United unarguably the country’s most reliable envoy jetted into neighbouring Tanzania to a wooden faced reception as they plot the downfall of Young Africans. The diabolic atmosphere in Tanzania stadia must not be underestimated by Zesco as it
YANGA’s most potent Arsenal. Nkana faced Simba last season and Nkana failed to contend the intimidating noise from the stands as they lost concentration and conceded a late goal that sent them parking. Zesco, however, has been in Champions league for years now and they must be experienced enough to hold nerves and have their eyes on the ball.
Boring flight to Bolton city
Sensational ZANACO sneaks into the competition after the bankers were on by in the previous round.
The bankers fly to Mauritius to take on BOLTON CITY which is by far not an easy team to beat at home. The Number Mukamba drilled side look like a team in a hard-punching mood after posting a 2-0 win over Green Eagles over the weekend but a serious concern is harassing their endeavours in Mauritius.
ZANACO took a 16 hours flight connecting to Mauritius through Dubai and jet lag and fatigue might affect the display on the field. BOLTON CITY is not an easy team to handle when they are at home and ZANACO will need to employ the best CCTV cameras as they try to cash in away from home.
Warren worries in Lusaka
Green Eagles will be hosting Primeiro d Agusto of Angola in Lusaka at Heroes Stadium but Eagles will play without hard-tackling defence kin pin Warren Kunda. The high flying Eagles seem to have dropped their flying Altitude in the last two games after a 1-1 draw against Warriors a forty night ago before they lost 2-0 to ZANACO last week.
They are now facing their most difficult test and they will need to put in more than they put in against Orlando Pirates if they are to go past Augusto. However with the Warren Worries in their back four at will be an uphill battle and a long 9p minutes.
Elsewhere the Zambia Super league will be back to action and matches will be in full swing throughout the stadia dotted across the country. The most colourful fixture is with no doubt the clash between KANSANSHI DYNAMOS and NAPSA STARS both sides collected maximum points in their first games and when two powers collide, the weaker power must submit.
