IT promises to be an exciting Chibuku Super Cup final tie between Triangle and Harare City at Gibbo Stadium on Saturday.
For Triangle, home advantage is not enough.

“That we are playing at home puts us under severe pressure. But if we can maximise there is nothing that beats playing at home. So we need not get over-excited about playing at home. At the same time we want to ensure that the trophy having been taken to Gibbo, remains there,” said Triangle head coach Taurai Mangwiro.

His opposite number Mark Harrison is not an amused man as he believes that Triangle will be playing at home gives them an edge over his side.

“Triangle have the advantage already. They have been given the chance to play at the home field, we should be playing at a neutral venue,” said Harrison.

When the Chibuku Super Cup returned in 2014, FC Platinum beat Harare City 2-1 in controversial circumstances in the final held at Mandava Stadium.

The following year, City finally got their hands on the silverware when they beat Dynamos 2-1 in the final at the National Sports Stadium.

In 2016, Ngezi Platinum Stars won the trophy after beating FC Platinum 3-1 in the final staged at Baobab Stadium.

Interestingly, Mangwiro was in charge of Harare City when they won the silverware for the first time in 2015.

He will become the first coach to win the title twice, with different teams since the re-introduction of the competition in 2014.

On their way to the final Triangle beat Shabanie Mine 4-2 on penalties after a goalless draw in regulation time in the opening round.

They went on to thrash Nichrut 5-1 in the quarter-finals and a 2-1 win over struggling Dynamos in the last four secured them a place in the final.

Harare City got their campaign underway with a narrow 1-0 win over Bulawayo City in the first round.

They then dismissed Bulawayo giants Highlanders 2-0 in the quarter-finals and sent CAPS United packing from the semi-finals following a 2-1 win.
