2021 ABSA Cup Qualification Race Heats Up


The hunt for ABSA Cup qualification reaches its peak this weekend as FAZ Super Division teams play round 17 matches.

Top six teams in the Super Division qualify for ABSA Cup as at Week 17 which is the half season mark.

With the top six threshold currently standing at 25 points teams in contention for ABSA Cup qualification include Power Dynamos, Kabwe Warriors, Zesco United, Buildcon, Prison Leopards and Lusaka Dynamos.

Zesco and Buildcon face-off on Saturday at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in the Ndola derby with ABSA Cup qualification at stake.

Coach Mumamba Numba’s Zesco side is seeking to bounce back from last weekend’s 1-0 loss at Young Green Eagles as Buildcon target to build on their 3-1 win over Nkana in the last match.

Both teams sit on 25 points apiece going into Saturday action.

Elsewhere on Saturday, leaders Zanaco will take a short trip to Nkoloma Stadium to face Red Arrows in the Lusaka derby.
