As the MTN Super League nears its conclusion, the competition remains intense despite Red Arrows already being crowned champions of the 2023/2024 season. With their victory, Red Arrows have secured a spot in the CAF Champions League. However, one slot for the CAF Confederation Cup remains up for grabs, making the final matches critical for three contending teams: Zesco United, Power Dynamos, and FC MUZA.
Zesco United currently sits in second place with 56 points, making them the frontrunners for the CAF Confederation Cup slot. Power Dynamos follows in third place with 52 points, while FC MUZA is in fourth with 50 points. The team that finishes the season in second place will earn the coveted position in the CAF Confederation Cup, adding high stakes to the remaining matches.
Zesco United holds a clear advantage. They need just one win in their final two matches to secure their qualification. Winning both games would elevate them to 62 points, while winning one would leave them with 59 points. Even if Power Dynamos win their remaining two matches, they can only reach 58 points, thus unable to surpass Zesco United. Therefore, Zesco’s destiny is firmly in their own hands.
Zesco United’s final fixtures are favorable. This weekend, they will host the already relegated Trident FC at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola. Their last match, scheduled for June 1st, will be an away game against Mufulira Wanderers in Mufulira. Given the current form and standings, Zesco United is poised to capitalize on these matchups.
Power Dynamos still have a fighting chance but will need to rely on Zesco United faltering in their final games. Power Dynamos will host Mufulira Wanderers this weekend at Arthur Davies Stadium, followed by a crucial away game against NAPSA Stars in Lusaka. To qualify for the CAF Confederation Cup, Power Dynamos must win both matches and hope that Zesco United does not secure more than one point from their two fixtures. 
FC MUZA faces the most challenging path to qualification. They must win their remaining two matches and hope both Zesco United and Power Dynamos lose their games. This weekend, FC MUZA will be away to relegation-threatened Kansanshi Dynamos in Solwezi. Their final match is a home game against Kabwe Warriors. Even with victories in both games, FC MUZA’s chances heavily depend on the performance of the teams above them.
As the MTN Super League season draws to a close, all eyes will be on these critical matches. The team that finishes second will join Red Arrows in representing Zambia in the CAF competition, adding significant pressure to the final rounds. Zesco United, with their current lead and favourable remaining fixtures, stands as the favorite. However, Power Dynamos and FC MUZA remain in contention, ready to capitalize on any slip-ups. The final weeks promise to deliver thrilling football as the race for the CAF Confederation Cup slot reaches its climax.
