This weekend will be a busy one for the teams affiliated to the Limpopo Stream of the ABC Motsepe League. After donating points to their opponents in the opening match against Emmanuel FC, to whom they had lost 0-1 at the Giyani Stadium last Saturday, United Artists will be on the road again this weekend.
Artists will travel to Phalaborwa on Saturday. Their match against Maruleng Celtic will be played at the Drakensberg Stadium outside Phalaborwa. Maruleng Celtic are still in joyous mood after their 2-1 victory over Madridtas FC in their opening match at the Tshifudi Stadium last Saturday.
Vondwe XI Bullets are leaving no stone unturned in their preparations for their home match against Emmanuel FC at the Tshifudi Stadium. Bullets and Emmanuel had won their matches last weekend, and for that reason local football lovers can expect to watch a thriller. Bullets had beaten Giyani Happy Boys 3-2, despite playing away from home.
Residents of Musina and the surrounding areas will have the privilege to watch top-class football on their doorstep this weekend. Their home team, Musina United, will host Giyani Happy Boys at the Musina Rugby Stadium. Underestimating Musina United will be a suicidal mistake for Giyani Happy Boys. United had managed to hold Bellevue Winners Park to a 1-1 draw at the Xikukwani Stadium outside Giyani in their opening match last Saturday.
Munaca FC will lock horns with Madridtas FC at the Makhado Show Grounds. Whether Madridtas will pay for Munaca’s 0-1 defeat at the hands of Mpheni Home Defenders remains to be seen. Mpheni Home Defenders will meet Bellevue Winners Park at the Louis Trichardt High School Grounds.
The other fixtures are Tubatse United FC vs City Motors, Mighty FC vs Mokopane PJ Stars, Sun Rise FC vs Nkowankowa Continentals, Eleven Fast Tigers vs Ditlou FC and Tzaneen United vs The Dolphins FC.
