IziQholo Zezhwane went in to the game as underdogs and Bosso were tipped favourites ahead of the encounter. However things totally went the opposite and the Bulawayo giants suffered another successive defeat.

Though the fading giants tried their best to restore parity, it was Tsholotsho who celebrated their first triumph of the campaign at the blow of the last whistle.
