Super league big clash new blood host old school

Faz Super division Zesco united

Old school and 12 times league champions Kalampa on Friday evening visit FAZ Super Division leaders Zesco United. Nkana are seeking to avoid losing twice to new blood Zega in the 2018 league season.

The Copperbelt derby will kick-off at 19h00 and is scheduled to be live on SuperSport from Levy Mwanawasa Stadium.

This game was scheduled for Saturday but it is been brought forward owing to Zesco’s CAF Champions League engagement next Tuesday.

Zesco beat Nkana 1-0 in the first round match played in Wusakile where Jesse Were was the scorer.

Zega heads into this Week 24 match in high spirits after a 2-0 win over National Assembly last Sunday, while Nkana disappointingly gave away a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 at Power Dynamos on Saturday.

Players to look out for in this Copperbelt derby includes Nkana’s Ronald Kampamba, Jacob Ngulube and Idris Mbombo as Zesco parades Lazarous Kambole, Jesse Were and John Ching’andu.

Nkana will miss striker Walter Bwalya who is attending his mother’s funeral in DR Congo.

Zesco lead with 57 points, 18 better than 6th positioned Nkana, who sits on 39 points after 23 matches played.
