  1. Which four teams? If Nkana wins assuming Zesco losses, Nkana will be at par on points with zesco, however zesco have a better goal aggregate. In this case, Nkana are out of contention for the league time. The battle is only between Zabaco, Zesco and Green Buffalos

    • Assuming Zesco,Zanaco & GBFC lose their games on the final day & Nkana win their game by 3 goals or more, Nkana will be crowned champions, ofcourse it’s difficult but it’s also possible…

  2. It’s not difficult for nkana to score more than two goals against konkola.if zesco,zanaco,and buffalo’s want to get the title, they must win or else they will cry.That is if they became complacent and loose their matches.

  3. Truly, these three top teams, are scared of nkana. Mark my words nkana is capable to win the tittle, don’t write the team off.infact as we chart, nkana is the most in form team as compared to zesco, zanaco, and buffalo’s .

  4. Zesco must improve their game.Their kind of play does,not befits champions .i love the aggressiveness of nkana and zanaco. My desire is for these two to play champion league. Buffalo are too strong and a bit slow,They deserve confed.zesco must improve, if not they will be imbalanced by mufulira. Mark my words

  5. They players for zesco don’t have the hunger to strongest appeal is that they mus t improve. They will be representing the country. And the mufulira game will be the most difficult game for them.of all the teams in the relegated zone ,mufulira is the most dangerous. Zesco will not have it easy. They need to improve by five times for them to beat mufulira.
