[Zambia] Zanaco Hold Key To Sensational Title Fight Between Nkana And Forest Rangers As FAZ Closes League

The FAZ/MTN Super League crown will finally be decided today (Sunday) with second placed Forest Rangers facing ‘Sensational’ Zanaco at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium.

 

Despite not being title contenders sixth placed Zanaco will hold the key to the trophy vault as table toppers Nkana could pick up the spoils if Forest Rangers fail to win in their backyard.

Nkana are leading the pack on 50 points while Forest Rangers is hot on their heels with 49 points.

 

Zanaco will be the king makers with Coach Chris Kaunda having carried his full strength squad that could give Forest Rangers some headaches.

 

However, Forest Rangers has shaken off their post-covid-19 blues to revive their title claim with a huge statement made at Arthur Davies Stadium on Thursday where they deservedly buried Napsa Stars’ title hopes with a 1-0 win courtesy of a Lameck Silwaba goal. With that spirited performance at Arthur Davies Stadium they reached a historic milestone by qualifying to the 2020/2020 CAF Champions League.

 

Tenant Chilumba will be looking the prolific Adama Zikiru, Qadri Kola and Lameck Silwaba to lead the lines.

 

Forest Rangers has also experienced camapigners in Webster Muzaza, Conlyde Luchanga and Shadreck Malambo.

In goal Mathias Kigonya will provide the final safety net.

 

The bankers will be looking to wind up the season on a high with the likes of Roger Kola, Chitiya Mususu, Moses Phiri and Charles Zulu expected to light up the show.

 

With Chipolopolo coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevoc keeping an eye for local talent players in both teams will be motivated to put in their best shift.

 

The match will be live of pay television channel SuperSport and kicks-off at 15:00 hours. In line with the covid-19 guidelines, the game will be played behind closed doors.
