Harare derby ends goalless

[Posted 15 Nov 2010]

The Harare derby ended in a goalless draw on Sunday

Dynamos and CAPS United played to a goalless league draw on Sunday at Rufaro Stadium,  the ceremonial home of Zimbabwean soccer in Harare.

The major talking points of the match, considered by others not to have lived up to its top billing, were the heroic saves of in-form Dynamos goalkeeper Washington Arubi, DeMbare's lost chance to cover ground on run-away log leaders Motor Action and the tension in the match.

Veteran Dynamos midfielder Murape Murape fluffed some few important chances in the match, including a 14th minute miss, with only Edmore Sibanda to beat. Benjamin Marere and defender Brighton Tuwaya joined Murape on the list of culprits from the blue half of town.

CAPS had their fair share of missed chances too in the derby. Even though the Green Machine somehow dominated their rivals in the first few minutes of the match, they never had clear cut-chances until the 39th minute.

The ever reliable free-kick specialist Sibanda, failed to direct his pile driver at goal in the 39th minute from a free-kick. Clive Kawinga missed a golden opportunity to put CAPS ahead close to the hour mark.

In the last 10 minutes of the match, Arubi demonstated why he is the preferred choice in the Warriors team with heroic saves to deny substitutes Joel Luphahla and Marvel Samaneka.

At the end of the day, a draw was the fairest outcome of a closely contested biggest derby in Zimbabwean football. 

A draw was a drop of two points by Dynamos, as opposed to the gaining of a point. Dynamos were under pressure to gain ground on Motor Action, who beat Monomotapa 1-0  a mere 24 hours earlier. The Mighty Bulls now lead Dynamos by 4 points, though DeMbare have a game in hand.
