CAF CL: Zanaco draws Ah Ahly, Coton Sport and Wydad Casablanca in group stage
Zambian champions Zanaco have been handed a tough group stage in the CAF Champions League that will see them play Egyptian giants Al Ahly, Wydad Casablanca of Morroco and Coton Sport of Cameroun.
Zanaco were drawn in group D and they will play their first game away in Egypt against Al Ahly on 12th May.
With two trips to North Africa, the Numba Mumamba coached side will draw inspiration from Zesco United who had a similar group in the 2016 competition that saw them drawn against Al Ahly and Wydad Casablanca as well as Ivorian Side Asec Mimosas.
Zesco put up a sound performance in the competition to reach the semi finals of the tournament.
In what is a changed format of the champions league, should Zanaco emerge from the group, they will be looking out for opponents in group C which has champions Mamelodi Sundowns, AS Vita, St George and Esperance in the quarter finals.
