Zanaco, Mamelodi Sundowns draw in pre-season friendly


Zanaco today drew draw at home with defending South Africa PSL champions Mamelodi Sundowns in an international pre-season friendly played at Sunset Stadium in Lusaka.

The friendly ended 0-0 at in Zanaco’s first high profile pre-season friendly ahead of the 2019/2020 season that kicks off next month.

Sundowns are in Zambia for a two-match pre-season camp that began on Tuesday that ends this Sunday.

The Zambia camp is a late change to Sundowns pre-season itinerary that was supposed to see them go to DR Congo and play TP Mazembe and Don Bosco but was cancelled due to Ebola outbreak in that country.

Sundowns, will end their tour this Saturday with a date up the road at Nkoloma Stadium against hosts Red Arrows.

Arrows are a late change to the friendly program after Nkana, who were initially on the schedule to host Sundowns in Kitwe, opted out due to pre-season technical reasons


  1. Journalism in Zambia……”Zanaco today drew draw at home”. Anyway we are used to this now and have become immune to LT not caring about how they are contributing to degenerating the industry.

    Well done Zanaco! Sundowns is a big club and of late have been very consistent in achieving good results in the CAF champions league so this is good. I do think you still have the quality to actually beat them though.
