CAF Recap: Zanaco leave it late as Zesco fail to impress again

Sensational Zanaco on Sunday beat DR Congo outfit Motema Pembe in dramatic fashion to move within a point of qualifying to the quarter-finals.

Late goals from Kelvin Owusu and Souleymanou Moussa ensured the Bankers came from behind to beat the DR Congo outfit and collected maximum points via a 2-1 win in a match played at the National Heroes Stadium.

Bayindula Nkongo put the visitors in the lead barely seven minutes into the match.


Motema Pembe remained on the pitch minutes after the final whistle and confronted the referee who needed police protection to leave the field.

Zanaco’s second did not go down well with the visiting team as a defender cleared the ball after it had crossed the line and the linesman did not immediately run to the centreline but waited for the referee who according to Isaac Ngata, The Pembe coach 40 meters away from the action to signal for a goal.

Zanaco moves to second place in Group C with a match left to play and they only need to fight for a point away in Morocco against RS Berkane to seal their qualification.

Winston Kalengo scored Zesco United’s goal. TP Mazembe and Zamalek have already qualified in the group hence Zesco’s matchday six encounter away in Lubumbashi is a formality.

    Zesco should recognize that Chicken George has run his race. They can afford an expatriate. We cant win the Champions league with him. We need to go a step higher with the quality of coach for us to aim higher. Inchito yakosa.
