CAF CL: Zanaco beat Wydad Casablanca to go top of group D
Zambian league champions Zanaco have continued with their strong showing the CAF Champions league this time beating visiting Wydad Casablanca 1 – 0 at Heroes Stadium.
Numba Mumamba made two changes to the team that drew 0 – 0 in Egypt against Al Ahly in the first fixture of the group stage bringing in Kwame Attram for Felix Nyaende and Didi Kitumbo for Zimiliseni Moyo.
Zanaco went ahead in the 13th minute with a well taken Enerst Mbewe goal.
The midfielder slammed home a lay off in the box which gave Wydad goalkeeper Zouhari Laaroubi no chance.
The Moroccans pressed for an equalizer from then on but the Ziyo Tembo marshaled defense held strong to ensure there was no change to the scoreline.
With Al Ahly having beaten Coton Sport 2 – 0 away from yesterday, the result sees the Egyptian side and Zanaco move to four points with Zanaco in top as they have a better head to head.
Wydad had beaten Coton Sport 2 – 0 in the first round of games which leaves them in third position on three points while the Cameroonians are the tail enders with no point.
Zanaco host Coton Sport next week on Saturday.
