LOCAL football fans are in for a treat when the biggest teams in the country, Highlanders and Dynamos, will clash in the inauguration match of President Emmerson Mnangagwa at the National Sports Stadium in Harare this afternoon.
Bosso would play against Shabanie Mine in Maglas this afternoon, but the game was postponed because Highlanders took Dynamos instead as part of the festivities to mark the inauguration of President Mnangagwa in the capital.
Highlanders had their training in Barbourfields Stadium yesterday morning before finding their way to Harare later in the day. Lloyd Mutasa, Dynamos' coach, indicated that they had already chosen a side-to-face Caps United and that the same team would attack Highlanders.
"It's clear that when a coach goes into the fight, they want to win, we're behind as Dynamos, so it's a chance for us to catch up." We would play Caps United, we had already selected the team to face Caps United As we had a team, that team would have to do duty because we have tough assignments, & # 39; & # 39; Mutasa said.
Highlanders beat Dynamos 1-0 in the first meeting between the two giants of Zimbabwean football, while the return armature was postponed. Mutasa wants to use today's meeting to trickle its players in, a winning mentality against their fierce rivals.
"They have defeated us, we want to build that winning mentality before we play in the Battle of Zimbabwe, which will come soon.You just want to be victorious, these are the two big teams in the country, you want to build a winning mentality in your boys, & # 39; & # 39; Mutasa said.
Highlanders lost 3-2 to Chicken Inn last Thursday, in a match the men of Madinda Ndlovu went to sleep in the first half before they came to life in the second. Ndlovu hopes that his players can continue leaving the Chicken Inn when they set up a brilliant second half display to earn almost a draw.
It promises to be an exciting match with the two teams who would like to prove who is better, a little more with their threatening battle for three points in the new couple of weeks.
Meanwhile, Chicken Inn is taking on ZPC Kariba in Luveve, in one of the three Castle Lager Premier Soccer League matches scheduled this afternoon. The Gamecocks have not tasted in eight games, with six wins and two draw matches.
At Vengere Mutare City faces Ngezi Platinum Stars, while Triangle collides with Bulawayo City at Gibbo.
