The Zambian Premier League of the current season started in the second half of August 2022 and will end at the end of May 2023. In total, 18 clubs take part in the competition, which will play 34 rounds in total. The teams that take places from the first to the fourth will receive vouchers for the right to participate in international tournaments, and the weakest four teams will drop in the class following the results of the championship. At the same time, the struggle, both for the championship and for the right to remain in the elite, should be very stubborn.

The main contenders for the victory of the Zambian Premier League after the first round were the following four teams: Power Dynamos, Forest Rangers, MUSA and Green Buffaloes.
Lombe Chipupu’s wards are having a good season and may well count on winning gold medals. At the same time, the last time the champion title of Power Dynamos managed to be obtained in 2011. In the current Premier League season, the Abayellow have won 10 wins, with 9 draws and lost twice. At the same time, by the 21st round, the team from Kitwe was ahead of the second Forest Rangers by two points. It is worth noting that in the January segment, â€œpower 90â€ played four matches and painted the world matches in all of them.
By the 21st round, Power 90 had the best defense in the league, conceding only eight goals. On average, almost one goal per three games. The whole struggle for Power Dynamos is still ahead, but if the club continues to score points as well, then it will be possible for the â€œyellowsâ€ to get the â€œgoldâ€.
The team of Tenant Chilumba after the 21st round was on the second line of the standings. The team was two points behind the first Power Dynamos and just as much ahead of the third MUZA. With 9 wins and 10 draws, Forest Rangers lost twice. In October, the club from the city of Ndola lost minimally away to Maestro United Zambia, and in November at home to Green Eagles. After that, the “fole malembe” was given a series of seven fights without losing. It is extremely important for the Greens to win more often, in which case Clifford Mulenga and partners will be able to win the championship.
Forest Rangers look pretty good in terms of gameplay. At the same time, the â€œgreensâ€ very often play in a draw, and it is precisely the abundance of world matches with not too formidable opponents that may not allow the team to be in first place.
Maestro United Zambia in the 21st match of the championship got 10 wins, with 5 draws and 6 defeats, which allowed them to take the 3rd place in the standings. At the same time, in the January segment, the team managed to get three wins in a row over Green Buffaloze, Green Eagles and Chambishi, as well as paint a â€œdryâ€ world match with Power Dynamos. As a result, MUZA are in third place, two points behind second and four points behind first. Possessing one of the strongest attacks in the league, the Red-Yellows do not play well in defense. So it will be difficult for the team to compete for the championship.
Maestro United Zambia periodically give out a confident series of games, but there are also losses from representatives of the relegation zone. MUZA will most likely finish in the top four, but it will be difficult to rise above the third line.
“International Buffalo” is not stable, but continues to fight for medals. After the 21st round, the Green-Whites had 8 wins, 10 draws and 3 losses. Only Red Arrows, Green Eagles and Maestro United Zambia lost to Green Buffaloes. It should also be noted that in the January segment, “mbuu” got five points out of 12 possible.
Green Buffaloes do not have stability and one should hardly expect serious achievements from this team.
Green Buffaloes and MUZA are extremely unstable and, most likely, these opposing sides will compete for bronze medals. The Red-Yellow and Green-White should hardly count on more. The battle for the championship promises to be hard-fought as Power Dynamos and Forest Rangers rarely lose. At the same time, the fole malembe started 2023 more confidently. So preference in the fight for “gold” should be given to the team from Ndola.
