Azam host Stand United

TITLE contenders Azam FC will be at home to visiting Stand United from Shinyanga in the Mainland premier soccer league match to be played at the Chamazi Stadium this afternoon.

The match was earlier supposed to be played on February 3rd but a postponement resulted in a decision to push it back.
With 47 points at dangling on their fingers, Azam would like to post a victory and scale up the standings ladder. The ice-cream makers trail holders Yanga by three points and hefty seven adrift of leaders Simba.

The Chamazi-based team will certainly be under pressure as they urgently need the points to boost their title race for the season. Azam has three matches in hand to tally most of the teams in the league that has attained 23 appearances.
Stand United has so far attained 30 points in 22 appearances and safe from relegation worries.

Statistics show that Stand has won nine matches, drew three and lost the rest since the season kicked off in September last year. Their opponents and hosts Azam have won 15 drew five and tasted the only loss to Coastal Union.

On paper, Azam is a superior side to the visitors but there is no guarantee for victory as football has its own miracles. There will be no change to the three top placed teams in the standings as Azam have poor goal aggregate when contrasted to second-placed Yanga.
