2017 Barclays Cup – Semi final double header set for Nkoloma
Nkoloma Stadium will host the 2017 Barclays Cup semi-final double header on Saturday, 14 October, 2017.
In the early kick-off scheduled for 13:00hrs, defending champions Zesco United will play 2012 winners Napsa Stars before last season’s losing finalists Zanaco meet Lusaka Dynanos at 15:00hrs
Zesco United – record winners with five titles – reached this year’s semifinals following a hard fought 1-0 win against Division One Zone Two qualifiers Kitwe United thanks to Fackson Kapumbu’s second half strike in their quarter final match played at Nkana Stadium on 27 September.
Napsa Stars needed the lottery of post-match penalties to edge Green Buffaloes 3-2 following a 1-1 draw in regulation time.
The second match will feature two sides who have never won the competition before.
Zanaco will play their first match in this year’s competition after progressing to the semi finals via a walkover after their opponents Power Dynamos withdrew from the competition.
Lusaka Dynamos – participating in the competition for the first time since 2014 – defeated Kabwe Youth Soccer Academy 1- 0 thanks to Marvin Jere’s goal at Nkoloma Stadium.
Winners will progress to the final tentatively scheduled for Saturday, 28 October.
