Will Dynamos successfully match Highlanders’ record of four straight league titles at the end of this season?

This is undoubtedly the biggest question in most soccer lovers’ minds, following the Harare side’s easy 2-0 win over fellow title favourites Highlanders in last weekend’s Bob90 Cup final.

Dynamos and How Mine are the most-prepared side ahead of the start of the 2014 PSL season next month, having already played competitive football in the CAF competitions.

DeMbare bowed out early from the Caf Champions League, but not before they could find combinations to their play, which showed in the game against the Bulawayo giants, whose record four wins – achieved between 1998 and 2002, remains under threat if the Harare giants are not stopped this season.

In friendly matches, Calisto Pasuwa’s side played a number of games, but challenges in their strike-force were exposed against PSL returnees Chapungu and Buffaloes, which both ended in 1-all draws.

DeMbare have brought in attacking midfielder Masimba Mambare from rivals Highlanders, Walter Mukanga from Triangle, Ronald Chitiyo from Monomotapa and Tafadzwa Rusike from South Africa’s Ajax Cape Town.

“We cannot really be sure of winning the title for the fourth time. In the friendly matches that we have played and the Bob 90 cup match against Highlanders we had an advantage of fitness over our opponents because we have been playing in the African Champions League, but we will fight and see what happens,” said Pasuwa.
