ZANACO face NAPSA in Barclays Cup finalBy Nyambe Lubasi on 28 Oct 2017
Zanaco and Napsa clash in the 2017 Barclays Cup final today at National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka.
This will be the two sides first-ever meeting in the Barclays Cup that enters its 11th season this year.
Zanaco are the team coming into the final with the most pressure having never won the Barclays Cup despite taking part in each and every edition since 2007.
Furthermore, Zanaco lost last year’s final 1-0 to record five-time winners Zesco United at the same venue.
“I think it will be great to finally win it. We have a chance to write our name on the Cup and I think this is the right time for us to win the Barclays Cup,” said Zanaco captain Ziyo Tembo.
Meanwhile, Napsa are chasing a second Barclays Cup title following their 2012 triumph to cap a memorable first season back in top-flight football in ten years.
Interestingly, Napsa and Zanaco’s league meetings this season have both ended in draws.
The two sides drew 0-0 at Napsa and 1-1 in Zanaco’s home game.
“I think it will be a tough game. Zanaco is a big team. We drew in the first and second leg in the league but the final is a different ball game,” said Napsa captain Fred Musinde.
“So we are very much aware of the threat of their strikers. It will be a tough game but it will be 50-50.”Related Items
