Red Arrows Soar To The Top of The MTN Super League Table

Red Arrows Football Club clinched a crucial 1-0 victory against Trident over the weekend, propelling them to the summit of the MTN Zambia Super League. This ascent came as Zesco United settled for a 1-1 draw against Konkala Blades. With this outcome, Zesco now trails the league leaders by just a single point.
Week twenty-one witnessed a series of shocking outcomes, with prominent teams suffering significant defeats, and Zesco United dropping crucial points that cost them their top spot on the table.
Heading into Week Twenty, ZESCO United held the top position with thirty-nine points, while Arrows trailed closely behind with thirty-eight points. However, following their recent triumph, Arrows have secured the top spot, relegating Zesco to the second position.
One of the most surprising results of the weekend occurred when Mufulira Wanderers stunned Zanaco with an impressive 5-0 victory at Shinde Stadium in Mufulira. Maite took an early lead in the 2nd minute, and by the 30th minute of the first half, the scoreline was already 3-0. By halftime, Mufulira Wanderers had extended their lead to 4-0, and they sealed the victory with a fifth goal shortly into the second half.
Throughout the match, Mufulira Wanderers demonstrated dominance, creating an electrifying atmosphere in the stadium. However, for the Wedson Coached side, this defeat was a bitter disappointment and fell short of their expectations. Zanaco's last defeat by such a significant margin across all competition’s dates back to 2008 when they suffered a 5-0 defeat against Power Dynamos in a Week 1 fixture of the 2008 season.
Maite’s triumph propelled them from 10th to 8th position in the league standings with twenty-eight points, while Zanaco plummeted from 8th to 10th position with twenty-seven points.
On Sunday, the defending champions, Power Dynamos, traveled to Independence Stadium in Choma, where they secured a resounding 4-0 victory against Green Eagles. Austin Muwowo's brace contributed significantly to Power's triumph, elevating them to thirty-six points and maintaining their third-place position on the table.
