Power Dynamos are through to the 2016 Barclays Cup semifinals after eliminating defending champions Green Buffaloes.
Power beat Buffaloes 2-1 at Nkoloma Stadium in Lusaka on Sunday to defeat the defending champions for a second successive match.
The two sides met last weekend in Kitwe when Power beat Buffaloes 4-1 in a league game at Arthur Davies Stadium.
Patson Daka, who scored a brace in that game in Kitwe, was again on target in Lusaka when he headed-in Francis Kasonde’s cross in the 13th minute.
Kennedy Mudenda then made easy work of Buffaloes stationary defence in the 25th minute minute to put Power in command of the match.
Buffaloes consolation came in the 49th minute from ex-Power striker Lottie Phiri.
The win was payback time for Power who lost 5-3 on post-match penalties of the 2015 Barclays Cup at the same stage and at the same venue by the same side after a 0-0 full-time result.
The 2019 and 2011 champions join Nkana and Zanaco in the semifinals scheduled for October 10 at Arthur Davies Stadium in Kitwe.
The three teams await aw the winner between Konkola Blades and Zesco United in the semifinal draws to be made by FAZ.
That match has been rescheduled due to Zesco’s on-going 2016 CAF Champions League semifibnal fixtures on September 17 at home and September 24 away in Pretoria against Mamelodi Sundown of South Africa.
