Here is everything you need to know about this weekend’s Zambian Super League matches as the final-day drama beckons.
Power Dynamos were declared winners a little over a fortnight ago, while MUZA’s top two finish warrants them a historical continental football qualification. The battle to survive relegation will most certainly be enough to whet our appetite. Buildcon Fc and Chambishi Fc are relegated but who will join them?
Zambian Super League matches to bet on this weekend including betting tips, odds, and previews.
Forest Rangers Vs ZESCO United
A scintillating encounter is on the horizon when these two sides meet in the Ndola derby. Forest Rangers’ heroics were rewarded with a trophy following their victory over MUZA FC in the ABSA Cup final last weekend.
Zesco United haven’t been as enthralling as they once were, and they’ve found themselves in an awkward situation. They missed out on a top-two finish by a whisker, with a 2-1 loss to Green Buffaloes at the business end, dampening their hopes.
Forest Rangers will need a victory to cement a stronger finish. They have 1 victory, 2 draws, and 2 losses in their last five matches while Zesco, on the other hand, has 4 victories and 1 loss.
The last meeting in the league ended 0-0 at the Levy Mwanawansa stadium.
Lumwana Radiants Vs MUZA FC
Survival will be the home side’s main objective going into this fixture but destiny isn’t in their hands. If both Nkwazi and Nchanga Rangers fail to collect maximum points, Radiants will have to beat second-placed FC MUZA to avoid the drop zone.
MUZA, on the other hand, will be keen on spoiling the party and could send their opposition into the National League. It has been a meteoric rise for a young team that has done everything against all the odds. Missing out on what would have been their first-ever silverware last weekend hasn’t dented the amount of success made this season.
The home side is struggling and has a record of 4 losses and 1 draw in their last five league matches. MUZA are in a rich vein of form and have 4 victories and 1 loss in their last five games in the league.
In their last meeting, MUZA lost 1-2 at home.
Prison Leopards vs NAPSA Stars
A victory for the home side would secure a top-ten finish while a victory for the visitors would secure a top-four finish but fate isn’t in their hands.
Pensioners set their sights on a top-two finish and perhaps their achievements this season could feel like a mere consolation. Who will grab all three points at the end of the 90 minutes or will the fixture end in a draw?
Leopards have a record of 1 victory, 3 draws, and 1 loss in their last five games. NAPSA Stars have 2 victories,2 draws, and 1 loss in their last five games.
Their last meeting in the league saw the Pensioners thrash the Correct Boys 4-1.
Red Arrows vs Power Dynamos
The current defending champions haven’t displayed the grits and glamour that secured them the title last season.
Power Dynamos, on the other hand, have been fantastic and got their hands on the title with three games left to play.
The Airmen will be keen on maximizing home advantage and spoiling the party for the Champions.
Red Arrows have 3 draws, 1 loss, and 1 victory in their last five games. Dynamos have been fantastic and have 4 victories and 1 draw in their last five games.
This game will be a battle between former and current champions, who will grab the victory, or will the game end in a draw?
Their last meeting in the league ended 4-0 in favor of Power Dynamos who ran riot at home.
Nkwazi vs Green Eagles
A victory for the home side would be enough to secure survivor in the top-flight but the Eagles of Choma stand in their way. The epic encounter will have both teams searching for three points.
Who will have the advantage at the end of the 90 minutes or will the fixture end in a draw?
Nkwazi have a record of 1 victory, 2 draws, and 2 losses in their last five games. Green Eagles have 2 victories, 2 draws, and 1 loss in their last five games.
The two drew 1-1 in their last Super League meeting this season.
Nchanga Rangers Vs Kabwe Warriors
Currently fighting to stay ashore, Rangers are desperate to grab all three points. Kabwe Warriors, on the other hand, could upset the table.
Nchanga Rangers will be keen on maximizing home advantage to get a favorable result and avoid relegation.
The home side has a record of 3 losses, 1 draw, and 1 victory while Warriors have 3 victories, 1 loss and 1 draw in their last five games.
Rangers 2-1 to Warriors in their last Zambian Super League meeting.
Green Buffaloes vs Zanaco
A thrilling encounter is on the horizon when these two sides lock horns in search of a much-needed victory.
The home side has been brilliant and perhaps was unfortunate to miss out on a top-two finish. The Bankers often found themselves swimming in uncharted waters but did enough to navigate toward safety.
Both teams have a record of 2 losses, 2 draws, and 1 victory in their last game. The encounter will certainly live up to its billing.
The two drew 0-0 in their last meeting in the Zambian Super League.
Nkana vs Kansanshi Dynamos
Will the men in red take a bite from their opponents or they leave empty-handed like they often have this season? It’s evident that home fans will want to see their team secure a resounding victory against their opponents. Kansanshi’s rollercoaster campaign should be pleased to survive relegation.
Nkana’s recent form has left very little to be desired, winning once while losing thrice and drawing once. Kansanshi have been fantastic winning 4 times and only losing once.
The last meeting in the Zambian Super League ended 0-0 in Solwezi.
