Zambia Super League defending Champions, Zesco United will start their title defense at home on Saturday against Sensational Zanaco.
The George Lwandamina tutored outfit are looking to make history and win a fourth title in a row having won the last three editions.
Numba Mumamba and his Bankers, on the other hand, are looking to make a good start to the season as they look to challenge for the title and possibly win their eighth at the end of the season.
The Bankers have a better head to head in the recent four meetings with two wins and a draw but form may not apply in a match of this magnitude.
Zesco United all-time top goalscorer Jesse Jackson Were is expected to lead the attack alongside newcomer Umaru Kasumba. For the bankers, Roger Kola and Chitiya Mususu are expected to partner upfront.
In midfield, the battle will see Zimbabwean midfielder Tafadzwa Rusike and Kelvin Kapumbu face-off with John Ching'andu and Kondwani Mtonga.
The match is expected to produce sparks and fans who will turn up are guaranteed a great match.
