CAF CL: Tight race for Zesco after Desportivo draw
Zesco United were held to a goalless draw at home in the CAF Champions League when they hosted Angolan side Club Desportivo on Tuesday afternoon.
The result left Zesco bottom of the log with no win in the first three games of group stage having now drawn twice and lost once.
Despite fielding what looked like his best possible starting eleven with renown goal scorers in Jackson Jesse Were, Lazarous Kambole and John Chingandu, the Ndola giants failed to break down the Angolan.
With Tunisian side Etoile du Sahel walloping Mbabane Swallows 3-0 in Eswatini, the North Africans moved top of the group on 7 points while Swallows have 4 points.
Zesco and Desportivo have 2 points apiece.
With nine more points to fight for, the George Lwandamina coached side still has a chance to top the group.
Zesco United XI
Jacob Banda – Simon Silwimba, Fackson Kapumbu, Marcel Kalonde, David Owino Odhiambo, Misheck Chaila, Kondwani Mtonga (Enock Sabumukama), John Chingandu, Lameck Banda, Lazarous Kambole, Jackson Were (Winstone Kalengo)
Primeiro de Agosto XI
Toni, Dany, Mingo Bille (Paizo), B. Ungenda, K. Anifowoshe, Chow, Anderson Guelor, Geraldo (Isaac), A. Ibukun, M. Bokamba, R. Adegbite
