A photo finish is expected in Swaziland on Sunday when the local MTN Premier League ends.

Royal Leopards, Mbabane Highlanders and Green Mamba, all separated by a mere two points, will battle all the way.

Leopards and Highlanders are tied at the summit of the league with 41 points apiece, but Leopards lead on difference.

Mamba are third with 39 points.

A mouthwatering encounter will be the clash between Leopards and Mamba at Mayaluka Stadium.

Highlanders will be hosted by Young Buffaloes at Trade Fair Ground.

The closeness of the finish has prompted the Premier league of Swaziland (PLS) to have the two fixtures kick off at the same time.

Vulindlela Kunene, PLS chief executive, said: "The matches will kick off simultaneously at 3pm with the second half kickoffs also being synchronized."

He urged the four teams to maintain the highest standard of fair play, and encouraged the Swazi nation to converge on both stadiums.
