MTN Super League Returns

The MTN Super League resumes today after a two-week break due to the ABSA Cup competition. Week thirty-one midweek fixtures promise to bring excitement as teams return to the pitch to continue their quest for the title or to avoid relegation.
As teams head into Week thirty-one, Red Arrows lead the table with sixty-four points. They recently won the 2024 ABSA Cup and are now focused on securing the MTN Super League title as well. Their dominance this season has been clear, and they are determined to continue their winning streak.
In second place, Zesco United has fifty-two points. They are twelve points behind Red Arrows and will be looking to close the gap as the season nears its end. Zesco United's consistent performance has kept them in the title race, but they will need to capitalize on every opportunity to challenge the leaders.
Defending champions Power Dynamos have had a disappointing season. Currently fourth on the table with forty-eight points, they have been inconsistent and are out of the title race. FC MUZA, sitting in third place with forty-nine points, has shown promise and will aim to finish the season strongly.
At the bottom of the table, Trident Football Club faces a tough battle to avoid relegation. They have only twenty-one points from thirty games and are in dire need of wins to climb out of the relegation zone. Prison Leopards are second last with twenty-eight points, followed by Kansanshi Dynamos with twenty-nine points. Mufulira Wanderers, with thirty-four points, are also in the relegation zone and will need to fight hard in the remaining fixtures to secure their place in the league.
