Chibuku Super Cup draw next week

HARARE - Premiership title contenders FC Platinum and Highlanders will be hoping to be separated during next Tuesday’s Chibuku Super Cup quarter-final draw to be held in Gweru.

FC Platinum and Highlanders are the only two teams who still have high chances of winning the league title and the Chibuku Super Cup.

They are the only two teams among the top four teams who managed to sail through to the quarter-finals.

The other two giants, CAPS United and Dynamos, who are in second and fourth place on the log standings, failed to qualify to the next stage of the tournament after they went down to Tsholotsho and How Mine respectively.

The Chibuku Super Cup results poured more misery on the two Harare giants who are currently struggling to solve in-house problems.

The exit of DeMbare and Makepekepe left Norman Mapeza and Erol Akbay charges’ as the main favourites to bag the tournament.

FC Platinum, who are currently on top of the PSL standings with 48 points, beat Chapungu 2-0 to progress to the quarter-finals last weekend.

Their game against Chapungu saw veteran striker Charles Sibanda score his first goal since his return to FC Platinum from How Mine to add to Winston Mhango’s first goal.

The Zvishavane-based side won the first edition of the Chibuku Super Cup after its return in 2014 and they will be hoping to add another trophy.

Highlanders progressed to the quarter-finals of the tournament after beating Mutare City Rovers 2-1

For Highlanders coach Akbay, he will be hoping that winning the Chibuku Super Cup will bring smiles back on Bosso supporters.

The Bulawayo giants are currently in third position on the log standings, four points behind Platinum.

The draw also includes Harare City, How Mine, Ngezi Platinum, Triangle, Tsholotsho and ZPC Kariba.
