Nkana and Zesco United Football clubs this afternoon engage each other in a fierce match day five of the CAF Confederations cup at Kitwe’s Nkana stadium.
The encounter may however be a litmus paper for both club’s progression in the competition with just a game remaining in group C.
Nkana lost by two goals to nil to Zesco United in the opening group fixture played at the Levy Mwanawasa stadium last month.
And the reverse fixture is a must win for both clubs if they are to solidify their chances of making it the knock out stage.
Topping group C is Sudanese side Al Hilal on seven points, followed by Asante Kotoko of Ghana on six points.
Nkana are third on six points while tail enders is Zesco United on four points.
The match kicks off at 15:00 and the Zambia sports Fans Association Patron Peter Makembo has retaliated his call to fans to exhibit high standards of discipline during the match.
Makembo says this will help maintain peace and avoid any possible sanctions from CAF.
Speaking to ZNBC Sports, Makembo appealed to fans to troop in numbers and support both teams as they are representing the country at the moment and not individuals.
