The 2015 Chibuku Super Cup action explodes tomorrow with 2014 runners up Harare City opening the campaign against Buffaloes in the first round matches.The first round matches also feature a Bulawayo derby between How Mine and Highlanders.
Harare giants Dynamos who last season were knocked out by Black Rhinos in the first round have a potential litmus test on their hands a fixture against Wha Wha on Saturday.
Wha Wha proved they can be party spoilers by beating Dynamos 1-nil in the first leg of the league encounters. DeMbare coach Tonderayi Ndiraya will therefore be looking at avoiding another humiliation at the hands of the league debutants as this will put a big dent on his new role as Dynamos head coach.
The same Saturday league pacesetters Chicken Inn will be playing Hwange at Luveve.A good season run in the league positions the Gamecocks as potential favourites to lift the Chibuku Super Cup.
Defending champions FC Platinum will hope to carry their recent good form into Saturday fixture when they play Dongo while Chapungu has Flame Lily at Ascot stadium.
Despite inconsistent forms in the league, giants Highlanders are aware of what cup games mean making Sunday’s derby against How Mine a cracker as one of the two must exit the competition.
The same Sunday Triangle United entertain Tsholotsho at Gibbo stadium while the capital city has a potential thriller as Caps United take on struggling ZPC Kariba.
With cup games often notorious for spitting out unexpected results soccer fans will definitely be holding their breath this weekend hoping for the best for their teams.
