Makwaza eyes Zanaco kill in Barclays final

Sports Makwaza eyes Zanaco kill in Barclays final

Napsa Stars seek another giant-kill in the Barclays Cup on Saturday when they face their Lusaka rivals Zanaco in this year’s final at National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka on Saturday,

Napsa have already eliminated 2015 champions Green Buffaloes in the quarterfinals and dumped the defending champions and record five -time winners, Zesco United, at the semifinal stage.

“Going into this game, very interesting, there is a team that is going into the final hoping to rewrite history and one that wants to write history,” Napsa coach Linos Makwaza said.

“For our team, it has been a long journey in the quarterfinals we played Buffaloes; in the semifinals we played Zesco.”

Napsa head into the final in search of for their second Barclays Cup title.

They won their first in 2012 in what was also their first season back in the FAZ Super Division since 2000.

Should they win, they will join Power Dynamos on two Barclays Cup titles.

Zanaco on the other hand, have never won the Barclays Cup despite being the record participants in the competition after qualifying for each tournament since its inception in 2007.
