Caps United meant business from the onset and had FC Victoria on the ropes on several occasions.
The Green Machine was well oiled and besieged the league debutantsâ€™ goal area relentlessly.
Â The visitors chased shadows for much of the first half and it came as no surprise when the Harare giants surged into the lead from a set piece in the15th minute.
Caps United goalkeeper, Edmore Sibanda stepped up to take a free kick and let fly a stinging shot which took a deflection en route to the back of the net.
In the 21st minute, the Green Machine almost doubled its lead when Clive Kawinga unleashed a thunderous shot which cannoned off the crossbar.
Â With the pressure telling, a second goal appeared inevitable. It duly came in the 34th minute when Pride Tafirenyikaâ€™s booming drive from the edge of the box outfoxed Betserayi Mukure in goals for FC Victoria.
The second half saw FC Victoria playing with more zeal though to no avail.
But Caps United were always dangerous and a third goal indeed beckoned. This came to fruition when Douglas Walaza effectively hammered the final nail in the FC Victoria coffin when he waltzed his way past a cluster of defenders to seal a convincing victory for his side.
Caps United coach Moses Chunga was impressed with his teams dominant showing.
In other matches, Highlanders outclassed Douglas Warriors by four goals to one while Motor Action beat Hwange 1 nil to extend their lead at the summit of the log.
