Dynamos host Zanaco in Kitwe
A top of the table clash pitting Power Dynamos against Zanaco at Arthur Davies Stadium in Kitwe will headline week 7 action in the MTN/FAZ Super League.
Both teams have 13 points from six matches and are separated only by goal difference. Power Dynamos have a goal difference of seven while Zanaco's is three.
Playing at home where they haven't tasted defeat this season, Dynamos will be slight favourites to pull off a victory as they look to maintain pressure on log leaders Zesco United who will be away to Konkola Mine Police in Chilabombwe.
Dynamos suffered their first defeat of the season in mid-week when they lost 1-0 away to Nchanga Rangers in a week 3 rescheduled match and in the process failed to leap-frog Zesco United remaining second on the log.
Inspirational attacking midfielder Mukuka Mulenga and the frontline duo of Kennedy Mudenda and Gravin Chitalu will lead Dynamos quest for goals. While on form, skipper Joseph Sitali is the fulcrum of the midfield and his swift movement and passing prowess decisive against a Zanaco back four that has only allowed in two goals this season.
Despite boasting the meanest defence in the league, Zanaco appear to be drawing blanks upfront as they have only managed to find the net five times in six games, the lowest tally by any team in the top four.
National Assembly, Nakambala Leopards, Green Eagles, Indeni and Forest Rangers, all of them at the wrong end of the table, are the only sides that have scored less goals than Zanaco.
Both teams will be without some key players who recently got banned by Fifa from taking part in any football related activity following their involvement in a match-fixing scandal in Finland with Dominic Yobe missing for Zanaco and Stephen Kunda and Francis Kombe for Dynamos.
Another equally anticipated clash takes place at Edwin Imboela Stadium in Lusaka where Patrick Phiri's eighth-placed Napsa Stars host seventh-placed Nkana FC.
Nkana are the highest scoring team in the league with 11 goals to their credit but they have only registered two wins in six matches.
Drawing three matches in which they had an upper hand means their clinical finishing is almost matched by their sloppiness in defence having shipped in seven goals, making them one of three teams with the weakest defence in the top half of the table.
Napsa Stars will be another team missing key players as Nchimunya Mweetwa and Christopher Musonda will have been affected by the Fifa ban.
Former Chipolopolo striker Harry Milanzi, who found the back of the net in the 2-2 draw away to Roan United, will be expected to lead the line for Napsa Stars as they seek to get back to winning ways.
Although they are the highest placed of the newly promoted sides, Napsa have already lost three times but a win against Nkana will take them to ten points and help them to remain in close proximity of the leading pack.
