It's top-four, relegation battle

It's top-four, relegation battle

THE 28th round of NBC Premier League rages on today with six teams searching for maximum points in three different venues today.

Though the campaign's championship puzzle has already been solved, the relegation battle and race for the top four finish herald the last stages of the Premier League.

The already champions, Young Africans will be playing their last home match at Benjamin Mkapa Stadium in Dar es Salaam hosting Polisi Tanzania in a game which the former expect to receive a guard of honour.

Yanga were officially named the champions last week when they defeated Coastal Union 3-0 to reach an unassailable 67 points.

As such; they deserve to be given a guard of honour and after today's match, the 2021/22 champions will travel to Mbeya to face Mbeya City at Sokoine Stadium on Sunday where they will be handed over their 28th Premier League silverware.

Their final league game will be staged at Sheikh Amri Abeid Stadium in Arusha where Yanga will face Mtibwa Sugar on June 29th to mark the last day of this season.

Yanga's unbeaten run of the season will be tested by these three games such that if they succeed to end the marathon unbeaten, it will add a dimension to their perfect run.

Elsewhere today, Azam have a chance to re-claim the third slot if they manage to defeat Tanzania Prisons at Azam Complex in the city.

The Ice-cream makers have so far bagged 40 points from 27 games to accommodate the fourth place hence a victory will see them knock 43 points and leapfrog Geita Gold who currently sit on the third place with 42 points garnered from 28 encounters.

However, for the Prison Warders as they are compelled to win in order to shrug off relegation threat. Tanzania Prisons currently have 26 points after 27 encounters to accommodate 14th place, a position that puts them too close to the relegation door.

Another relegation decisive game will be at Uhuru Stadium in Dar es Salaam where KMC entertain the bottom- placed Mbeya Kwanza of which a defeat to the former will be enough to see them off to the championship league.

After dropping three points following a a 3-1 loss to Simba, KMC will not be in a mood to concede another setback as such; they will try to push for the good results and here is where the tense part of the game is.
