    Very fair draw, but ba Zesco dont underrate ba Mbabana Swallows. Paper Zesco and Etoile du Sahel of Tunisia are likely to qualify from this group

      I like it on paper is your wish. Small country as we look eSwatini but we shall emerge. Three full points we shall get from all home games then atleast a draw from outside. Mbabane Swallows respects all these giants they play against. We have already started with Zesco. Zesco will get ZERO points in their away game against Swallows in eSwatini.

    Anyway, Zanaco will square up against Raja Casablanca. Hmm. Almost same style of play. How I wish Saith Sakala was part of Zanaco.
