MY VIEW IN THE FAZ MTN TRANSITIONAL SEASON IN STREAM B – WEEK FIVE

ZANACO look set to continue with their unbeaten run.

Saturday – 23/02/19

Green Buffaloes Vs Kabwe Warriors
Edwin Imboela Stadium
15:00hrs
A look back at the history between these sides and one trend leaps out almost immediately, the history of draws.

Green Buffaloes have had Kabwe Warriors’ number over the past few seasons, in the last 22 games I count 7 draws between these sides but then Green Buffaloes has 9 wins while Kabwe Warriors has 6 in that period.

On top of that, each of these games have been low scoring; with no game having more than two goals dating back to 2017 when they ended in a 2-2 draw.

Considering that history (and Kabwe Warriors’ solid start to the season) the value plays here are easy to pick out with a low scoring draw.

Remember Warriors is one of the last three yet to test defeat and I don’t think that time is here .

My Prediction: Green Buffaloes 1-1 Kabwe Warriors

Red Arrows Vs Lusaka Dynamos
Nkoloma Stadium
15:00hrs
Red Arrows’ home woes ended with a win at home to Green Buffaloes and their strikers are starting to find form with the team scoring a beautiful goal through their captain Bruce Musakanya and playing well in the last four games.

While it was not a cure-all victory by any stretch, it is a step in the right direction for Chisi Mbewe’s side.

They will remember a frustrating loss against Lusaka Dynamos in 2017 which they were well beaten 3-1 at Sunset Stadium, but then Red Arrows has been top notch in the last three games against Lusaka Dynamos winning all the three encounters .

Lusaka Dynamos have picked up just five points this season but have given up just six goals, same with Red Arrows . Actually what separates these teams on the league table is alphabetical order. So both teams will have their work cut out for them to keep their goalscoring form up.

Last three matches between these sides have seen five goals from Red Arrows with none from Lusaka Dynamos and while a correct score play is tempting here, a victory for the Red Arrows is offering encouraging odds.

My Prediction: Lusaka Dynamos 1-2 Red Arrows

Zanaco Vs Nakambala Leopards
Sunset Stadium
15:00hrs
ZANACO look a very different team compared to the 2018 edition and their labour away to Zesco United just tells us how good this team is. That draw was epic and are yet to lose in this Super League this season.

That being said, they are still a solid force and have been installed as very short priced favourites here.

I think ZANACO has a rule, do not drop points at home so a victory here with their players firing from all cylinders and finding the net is a solid play here. Look out for Roger Kola. The man of the moment at ZANACO so far but then the distribution from Rusike just makes this team tick. ZANACO is on fire . Nakambala visits at a wrong time.

My Prediction: ZANACO 3-0 Nakambala Leopards

Prison Leopards Vs Kitwe United
Godfrey Chitalu Stadium
15:00hrs
The round five of football kicks off with two bottom teams in stream A meeting up on Saturday as second to last Kitwe United visits bottom Prison Leopards , fresh off their first win of the campaign against Mufulira Wanderers , Kitwe United will think its their time to stamp authority on weak teams.

It will also be the first time these sides have met in the Super League and even at this early stage, both sides will be desperate for some positive momentum.

Neither team has been overly potent in front of goals this year as Prison Leopards only managed their first goal against Red Arrows at home in week three. that’s were Kitwe United will feel they are better, with six goals to their name so far .

Based on that form, it is hard to see this game having a whole lot of goals in it and the pick here is to expect something similar. A draw .

My Prediction: Prison Leopards 1-1 Kitwe United
