VPL resumes this weekend



The second round of the Tanzania Vodacom Premier League will resume this weekend following a two month break since November last year.

French tactician Patrick Liewig will make his league debut incharge of defending champions Simba who are currently taking the third spot in the league with only one victory in their last five games.

Liewig will have a tough away match as he will lead the Msimbazi boys to face relegation threatened African Lyon Side who managed two wins in the first round as they fight for survival in the league.

Following their recent Mapinduzi Cup triumph, contenders Azam will also have a tough task as they welcome Kagera Sugar at their home ground Chamazi Stadium looking to close down the five point-gap on leaders Yanga, as they eye their first ever League title since their promotion in 2007.

Kagera Sugar are unbeaten in their previous nine games, and the ice-scream makers have managed only two wins in their last five games with three defeats.

Elsewhere, Yanga will be looking forward to stretch their unbeaten run in the league to nine games as they face bottom side Tanzania Prisons side at the National Stadium in Dar es salaam.
