THE view that Dynamos are a dangerous side when facing problems was firmly confirmed on Wednesday afternoon when a virtuoso performance by the defending Premier Soccer League (PSL) champions saw them outclass title contenders and log leaders Monomotapa 3-0 on Wednesday afternoon.
Attacking football is hardly a permanent feature of Dynamos’ game, but on Wednesday they turned on the afterburners and made a team that is on the brink of a remarkable league title success look so ordinary.
In the midfield captain Murape Murape rallied his troops commendably, as always, with Edward Sadomba returning to his very best after coach David Mandigora realised, belatedly in the season, that the mercurial Mbare-born player is not a striker but a wide player.
The manner in which Monos were demolished by a Dynamos outfit left many neutral observers inside Rufaro wondering how Norman Mapeza’s boys had reached this position where they virtually had one hand on the league title.
With the win, Dynamos reduced Monomotapa’s lead at the top to three points. All teams are left with two games.
Is it too late for Dynamos? It appears to be the case. All that Monomotapa have to do now is to win their remaining two fixtures, regardless of what Dynamos does. Both teams, like the rest of the teams, will play tomorrow then finish off the programme on National Unity Day holiday on Monday.
Monomotapa faces Chapungu tomorrow at Dzivarasekwa Stadium in Harare while Dynamos date Masvingo at Mucheke.
These appear to be relatively easy fixtures for both teams as their respective oppositions are struggling, meaning if they both claim maximum points, the title will be decided on the final day on Monday.
On Monday Dynamos will then play Kiglon at Rufaro while Monomotapa will play Lengthens at Dzivarasekwa.
