PREMIER Soccer League champions Caps United’s bid for a treble comes under the spotlight when they meet unpredictable Motor Action in the semi-finals of the Zifa
Unity Cup at Rufaro Stadium on Sunday.
Motor Action, boosted by their last two league victories against Shabanie Mine and relegated Zimbabwe Saints, have a knack of playing well against the Green Machine and are likely to face the league champions with all guns blazing.
The winner of the Unity Cup will represent Zimbabwe in next year’s edition of the Africa Cup Winners Cup.
Coached by former national team coach Rahman Gumbo, the Mighty Bulls will be looking up to gangling striker Musa Mguni, soccer star finalist Clement Mutawu and captain Prince Matore for inspiration.
On the other hand Caps will once again be expected to play as a coherent unit, but the likes of soccer star of the year favourites Cephas Chimedza, Ian Bakala and Raymond Undi can turn on the style to exhibit inspired individual brilliance.
In the other semi-final match, former league champions Amazulu engage Wankie at the Colliery Stadium in Hwange hoping to book a place in the final and clinch consolation silverware after a largely disappointing season.
Wankie are in high spirits, having beaten Highlanders 1-0 in the league last week, and are capable of repeating another giant-killing act.
The coal miners also claimed the scalp of Highlanders in the second round of the Zifa Unity Cup.
