The Premier League is back since Wednesday’s dramatic action - and these very short breaks are what we love to see.
This weekend’s most-pressured club are CAPS United. Makepekepe sit pretty at the top of the league but Chicken Inn and FC Platinum are sniffing close waiting for a slip-up.
CAPS will be on the road at mid-table floaters Mushowani Chiefs. The home side doe not have a pretty form reading. Chiefs have only tasted one victory in five games (2-1 over Chapungu in September).
CAPS, unbeaten in five games with four wins, tells you why they are the best team in Zimbabwe. 12 goals in five games is also not too shabby at all.
The second-best club in the league are Chicken Inn. With four points off the summit, maximum at home to Chapungu this weekend are non-negotiable.
FC Platinum may go into this weekend knowing that a third consecutive league title is on the balance. Even more serious are Saturday’s opponents. We’re talking ZPC Kariba, a side sitting on fourth position with equal points with the Platinum Boys.
At the bottom pit of the table, it is another opportunity to fight for life in the top division. Will the likes of Yadah FC, Bulawayo Chiefs, and Herentals shoot up and drag down the likes of Harare City and TelOne?
