Live – Saturday Football

Three Zambian clubs are in action on Saturday afternoon in CAF Continental competitions.

Zanaco host Gambian side Air Force FC at Nkoloma Stadium then later on Zesco United take on JKU SC of Zanzibar on Indian Ocean Island.

Later tonight it’s a North African job for Green Buffaloes as they face Al Masry in the Egypt.

Probable XIs and Formations

Zanaco v Gambian Air Force

Zanaco have arguably assembled the most expansive squad this season and coach Numba Mumamba can name two different match day teams.

Probable XI: Toaster Nsabata – Jimmy Nakena, Ziyo Tembo, George Chilufya, Zimiselini Moyo – Ernest Mbewe, Boyd Musonda, Tafadza Rusike, Charles Zulu – Martin Phiri, Maisha Chavda

Formation: 4-4-2

Numba favours starting with two strikers. It’s a close call between the combo Phiri and Maisha and the pair of Felix Nyainde and Chitiya Mususu.

In full backs areas Taonga Bwambya and Chongo Chirwa could start at the expense of Moyo and Nakena.

Congolese winger Guily Manziba could be a game changer off the bench.

Player to Watch: Rusike

The Zimbabwean midfielder is a box office signing and could be the one to watch.

He is grit and guile and has a sweet left foot and vision is superb.

He doesn’t shy away from a physical challenge.

New signings duo Maisha and Mususu are worth keeping in an eye on.

Rusike could take 2018 by storm

Chisamba Lungu might watch the second half.

JKU SC v Zesco United

The Zambian Champions sneaked into Zanzibar quietly.

Probable XI: Dieudonne Ntibahezwa -Fackson Kapumbu, Marcel Kalonda, Simon Silwimba, David Owino – Akumu Anthony Agay, Kondwani Mtonga, Enoch Sabumukama – Jackson Mwanza, Lazarus Kambole, Jesse Were

Formation: 4-3-3

Coach Tenant Chembo will go for attack against the minnows.

Jacob Banda, John Ching’andu and Winstone Kalengo might start.

Player to Watch: Lazarous Kambole

When Winstone Kalengo signed in Congo, he urged Zesco United management to hand Kambole the famed jersey no.10

And Kalengo was spot on as the former Konkola Mine Police striker became one of the key players for Zesco last season.
