ZESCO United form and stats

The home supporters can't complain about results here at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium as ZESCO United, who have the fewest conceded goals (23) in Super League, have scored 26 goals to get 31 points from 14 games. The overall stats in the Super League are 10-1-3 (wins-draws-losses).

A nice win for ZESCO United last time playing, versus Kitwe United. That was also a home game and the match ended 4-0. As mentioned above, ZESCO "killed" Kitwe United in their previous game. They need to reset completely for this one and beware of complacency.

Prior to that was the away defeat visiting Prison Leopards (0-3).

The match schedule is unforgiving for ZESCO as they have a new game in only four days, a Super League match thankfully also at home. Green Eagles are visiting.

A decent goal production from ZESCO in their home games so far, with 26 goals from 14 league matches. ZESCO have only conceded 11 from their league home games. For more goal stats, check the Statistics tab above.
