The image of the Zimbabwe Premier Soccer League in describing how Highlanders FC and Dynamos have started their campaign of the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League in Zimbabwean football

The title race for the honours of being crowned champions of Zimbabwean football has reached an exhilarating point.

The platinum sides, FC Platinum and Ngezi Platinum are leading the log standings, with FC Platinum at the helm with 59 points, while Ngezi have 57 points. If all goes well for FC Platinum, this season may be the dream season for Norman Mapeza, considering how he has been narrowly missing the title over the past seasons. The winning sprees of the two teams are perfect, both are determined to lift the title. If FC Platinum crumble a bit, it may be doom for them.

Dynamos looked a threat, and still pose one, but their Matchday 28 results, where they were forced into a draw, have derailed their momentum. They sit at third with 55 points. They will have to bank on the failures of FC Platinum if they are to realise the title, which has been eluding them over the past seasons.

Fourth place is occupied by Chicken Inn. Their poor form has seen them lose crucial points, especially their heavy thumping at the hands of a misfiring Highlanders side. Crucial points lost, title bid in tatters.

Matchday 29 and Matchday 30 are going to be characterized by shocks and surprises, and as of now, one can only wish for the last round of fixtures to arrive.
