AFTER his much-talked about move to Dynamos, Masimba Mambare faces his former paymasters Highlanders when the two sides lock horns in the Bob 90 Super Cup final at Rufaro Stadium on Sunday.
Mambare dumped Bosso for Dynamos after two seasons and signed for three years with the Bulawayo giants’ perennial rivals.
The attacking right linkman has featured in Dynamos’ failed Caf Champions League campaign and scored for DeMbare in his first game against Botswana’s Mochudi Centre Chiefs in Harare on February 9.
He will don the blue and white jersey on Sunday as the rivalry between Dynamos and Highlanders resumes before the two sides meet in a league match on Week 12 of the 2014 PSL fixtures in Harare.
Although the prize money for the tournament is yet to be confirmed, spokesperson Charles Mabika has said that the final is on this Sunday.
“Yes, the match is still on. It will be at Rufaro Stadium on Sunday.
“Both teams have confirmed participation,” he said.
Mabika said they were working on the guest of honour and other modalities for the match.
He said the spectators would pay $3 for the rest of the ground, $5 for upper west stand and $10 for VIP.
Highlanders booked a berth in the final after beating Harare City 2-1 at Barbourfields Stadium last month while Dynamos were given a bye.
Dynamos won the cup last year beating Highlanders 6-1 on aggregate after a two-legged tie.
Highlanders would be eyeing their second piece of silverware in as many years while Dynamos booted out of the Caf Champions League by AS Vita in the Democratic Republic of Congo, will be eyeing a consolation.
Dynamos lost 0-1 to AS Vita following a goalless draw at home last week.
Both teams will use the match as a preparation for the PSL which is expected to kick off later this month.
The two giants have been on the market and acquired several players that they would want to have a feel of a big match.
Dynamos have acquired Mambare, Tafadzwa Rusike, Ronald Chitiyo and Themba Ndlovu.
Bosso have roped in Kuda Mahachi, Charles Sibanda, Joel “Josta” Ngodzo, Valentine Ndaba, Njabulo “Popo” Nyoni, Khumbulani Banda, Welcome Ndiweni and Felix Chindungwe.
Burundi striker Habbas Jim who played in a practice match for the senior team against the juniors on Sunday at Luveve Stadium, could also feature on Sunday.
Rahman Kutsanzira who retraced his footsteps to Highlanders from Caps United but sustained an injury at training on his first day, watched the practice match on Sunday.
In pre-season so far Highlanders have beaten Harare City (2-1), FC Platinum (1-0) and lost in a penalty shootout to PSL returnees Chapungu in the semi-final of the CG Msipa Charity tournament.
