CCC: Zesco United get Smouha, Hilal and Libolo in group stage
Zesco United will play Smouha of Egypt, Hilal Obayed of Sudan and Recreativo do Libolo of Angola in the CAF Confederations Cup.
Zesco were drawn in group C and will be favorites in the group after reaching the semi finals of the CAF Champions League last year.
Zesco strolled to the group stage with a 5 – 2 aggregate win over Nigerian champions Enugu Rangers.
Libolo despatched CNaPS Sport of Madgascar on away goals after the two legs left the two teams tied at 1 – 1 while Smouha beat Bidvest Wits of South Africa 1 – 0 on aggregate.
Hilal qualified with an emphatic 4 – 1 win over GPA of Gambia.
Only the top two teams will qualify to the quarter finals of the tournament.
Should Zesco emerge from the group, they will be on a collision course with any of the teams in group D which include current champions TP Mazembe, Horoya AC, FC Mounana and Supersport United.
