Week Eight fixture
Without a doubt the biggest two teams in Zambia in the past 20 years who have been exchanging league titles squeezing the old giants out of the race for a couple of years now.
The two teams meet again this weekend in a week eight FAZ MTN Super League encounter with Zesco United hoping to win and maintain leadership after week eight while Zanaco with two games in hand continue doing catch up but will give a serious statement with a win which will take them equal to 16 points with ZESCO united.
The two teams in the last 24 games have have only had three 0-0 draw and hence goals are expected whenever the two teams meet. Zesco has scored 29 goals while Zanaco has scored 27 goals in the last 24 games the two have met.
It’s always a close to call game but with Zesco United straight from beating Lumwana Radiants at home 3-0 and Zanaco drawing away to Buildcon 1-1 it just fits to be called an electric encounter.
It’s not a secret that George Lwandamina is doing the background work while Siwale gets the face of the team during games as they wait for the clearance from YANGA on George Lwandamina.
Pundits and neutrals already have put these two teams to finish one and two at the end of the 2018 soccer season.
That direction will have an indication after the Saturday game at Sunset Stadium.
