What the coaches said:

Tonderai Ndiraya: “It’s going to be a difficult game as always.

“We are not going to look at what CAPS were doing in the previous games. That will not count at all on Sunday.

“CAPS are our biggest rivals locally (in Harare), so we expect it to be a difficult match for us. They will be putting all of their energy on us.”

Lloyd Chitembwe: “This game needs very cool heads, composure. It needs players to have the right kind of patience. It also requires players to have the right kind of commitment in as far as they apply their tactics, the technical and tactical strategies.

“Personally, I hope we have plenty of these come Sunday because they will obviously give us an advantage.”

Form:
Both teams go into the game desperate for points, with Caps United hoping to get their first point after a horrible run of five losses on the trot while championship chasing DeMbare are winless in their last three.
