Zesco awaits Zanzibar/Burundi side in Confederations Cup
Ndola side Zesco United has been exempted from the preliminary stage of the CAF Confederations Cup.
The 2016 CAF Champions League semi finalists will wait for the winner between KVZ of Zanzibar and Messeunger Ngozi of Burundi and that will put them as strong favourites to make it to the last 32.
Though there’s uncertainty with regards to the future of a host of key players with many of them linked to moves away from Levy Mwanawasa Stadium, Zega will be one of the sides to watch in Africa’s second tier competition.
Idriss Mbombo is expected to return to parent club Kabwe Warriors with a move abroad to finalise soon while East African duo Jesse Were and David Owino have been linked with a move to Tanzanian giants Yanga together with Misheck Chaila.
Zambian Champions Zanaco will face Rwandan side APR FC in the preliminary stages of the 2017 CAF Champions League.
The bankers will host APR on the weekend of 10-12 February, 2017 before a return leg in Kigali a fortnight later.
Should the Numba Mumamba coached side navigate over the two legged tie then a mouthwatering potential tie against George Lwandamina’s Yanga of Tanzania awaits them. Young Africans (Yanga) has to negotiate past Comoros side Ngaya on match day 1.
