Dynamos avoid Bosso

DEFENDING champions Dynamos have avoided old foes Highlanders as they play in the semi-finals of the Independence Trophy scheduled for Rufaro Stadium on Sunday.


Potentially, the two could meet again in the final on April 18 — their second meeting this year after the Harare football giants triumphed 2-0 in the Bob90 Super Cup at Rufaro two weeks ago.

According to Zifa communications manager Xolisani Gwesela- Dynamos will face Harare City at Rufaro on Sunday while Highlanders host FC Platinum in Bulawayo at Barbourfields Stadium.

“We picked the team which finished first in the league last year to play against the team which finished third with the team which finished second playing against the team which finished fourth.

“Details of the prize money will be announced in due course,” Gwesela said yesterday.
Dynamos won the league title on goal difference after pipping Highlanders and Harare City who finished second and third respectively in a very close championship race.
FC Platinum finished fourth in the campaign.

The Independence Cup is now the official opening tournament  — replacing the NetOne Charity Shield which has been the traditional season opener.

Premier Soccer League chief executive Kenny Ndebele said they had decided to make the Independence Trophy the opening tournament of the season after realising that as football stakeholders, they should not been according the tournament the status it deserved.

The winners of the semi -finals will play in the final on April 18 in Harare with the losers playing for the third and fourth place in Bulawayo the same day.

Dynamos are the defending champions after edging bitter rivals Highlanders 1-0 in the final last year.

    1. @ Mrasta…change your a*s

    2. Mrasta usaputire pfungwa nevhudzi. Tell the other teams to pull up their socks and finish under the top 4 in the league. Kana Dembare ichigona zvorega kuonekwa because there is Mrasta anoremerwa nepfungwa.

    So far H City is the host coz Dembare now uses Nss as their home ground.

  8. Its platnum vs Dynamos in the final .Bosso haibude apa and platnum ichatora nema penalts

  9. amahlolanyama ngenkani ongafuniyo kayekele………….

  10. madimbare mawacha

    bosso ngenkani dembare mawacha

  11. I think they have drawn teams in this manner so as to make sure that at least highlanders reaches the final.

  12. Poor reporting. Did Dembare avoid Bosso. Zvinoita sekuti Dembare ndiyo yakaita draw yacho.Reporter DOFO

  13. They pitted teams from the same region against each other in the semi-finals so as to have a team from the north and a team from the south in the final which would look good for the image of the game as it is an Independence trophy! What should have been done was have the top four teams drawn from a “hat” and u who ever was picked would face each other,it would have been more interesting that way which could have pitted Bosso vs Dembare n Harare City playing FC Platinum in the semi’s with the best teams reaching the final coz now we would probably have another Bosso vs Dembare final…draws should be conducted professionally and that way we can get the best out of our football!

  14. Reporter pliz may yu explain how DYNAMOS avoids bossorohwa? Unoreva here kuti DEMBARE ndiyo yakaita draw yacho. Sei uchirwadziwa nekugona? I would be happy 2kol yu cowreporter. @ marasta I’m sure yu better kol yoself rust. Njere dzako dzinengura. Did yu read b4 yu show us ngura iri mumusoromako? Saka Qaida kuti DEMBARE ne Harare kitsi dzitambirepi?

  15. Yazi lina maShona lisijayela kabi , why lingathi ifinal idlalelwe eMagumeni ngoba lathi abafana bethu abakujayelanga ukudlalela ku carpet

  16. The draw doesn’t favour Dembare because City yacho haiite. The venue of the final doesn’t either because Dembare always beats Bosso home and away. How mine beat both CAPS and Dembare in Harare in the Mbada cup saka murikuti chii? Noone is guaranteed anything with this draw. As for the reporter, I rest my case, lest my message is not posted.

  17. poor headline editor!

  18. Siyinqaba inkezo ngeyethu Bosso ngenkani

  19. mazidofo nw eat ur words dembare won n ur bosvolona lost so who is avoiding who
