The shift in venues by the glamour boys might be perceived intimidatory if the past is anything to by, but dynamos midfield work horse Ashley Rambanapasi says the venue holds fond memories for him and Sunday will provide him a chance to re-create a historic chapter for his new team.

 

Team captain Tafadzwa Maingire and probable starter, striker Evans Gwekwerere believe reverting to natural grass brings much relief adding that the pitch is more spacious than Rufaro.

 

In their morning training session Dembare looked at ease despite the fact that they will not be playing at their traditional hunting ground Rufaro Stadium.

 

While some sections believe Dynamos play better at Rufaro Stadium than the National Sports Stadium, history has shown that the giant arena is also a good hunting ground. In 1999, Dynamos thrashed St Lousianne of Reunion 7-2 in a CAF Champions mini-league match with Ronald Sibanda and Kingstone Rinhemota grabbing a hat-trick apiece.

 

Despite FC Lupopo having four former Dynamos players in their line-up, the Glamour Boys who have never failed to progress to the mini-league of CAF Champions league will go into the match with a slight edge as their record against teams from the region has been superb.
