PSL double derby delight live on your World of Champions.
Derby fever will grip the nation this weekend as Dynamos and Highlanders renew their age-old rivalry in the “Battle of Zimbabwe” on Sunday while Harare City and CAPS United engage in another Harare derby a day earlier. Both matches will be broadcast live on SuperSport 9.
The live build-up to the biggest fixture in Zimbabwean football has been extended to 30 minutes, with coverage starting from 14:30.
SuperSport has broadcast every edition of the “Battle of Zimbabwe” since 2013, with some dramatic moments. In the corresponding fixture in 2013 Highlanders were seconds away from for a first league win over Dynamos since 2006, only for Partson Jaure to score six minutes into stoppage-time to make it 1-1. When they met in Harare 12 months ago, Washington Pakamisa's goal gave Dynamos another victory.
This time around both Dynamos and Highlanders have been below their best, so they have plenty to prove to their fans. Another tension-filled encounter is expected, and your World of Champions will bring you all of the action.
Ahead of the “Battle of Zimbabwe”, SuperSport will broadcast the Harare derby between Harare City and CAPS United on Saturday at Rufaro Stadium, as CAPS begin life without coach Mark Harrison. Both teams have shown promise this season but they find themselves in need of points to mount a title challenge going into the second half of the season.
