Zambia’s representatives in CAF inter-club competitions stumble

Zambian representatives in the CAF inter-club competitions, Zesco United and Sensational Zanaco failed to make use of home advantage as they dropped points at home.

Zesco United was handed a 2-1 defeat by DR Congo giants TP Mazembe in their CAF Champions League group A match day two encounter while Zanaco were held to a 1-1 draw by Moroccan outfit RS Berkane.


Zesco United welcomed TP Mazembe looking to record their first win at home following an impressive draw away in Angola against Primeiro de Agosto.

Congolese forward Jackson Muleka was the hero of the day scoring two wonder strikes leaving Jacob Banda looking hopeless to guide the Five-time Champions to a comfortable 2-1 win. Winston Kalengo scored the consolation goal for the Ndola based outfit.


The Bankers hosted RS Berkane at the National Heroes Stadium looking to record their first win of the CAF Confederation Cup group stage.

Zanaco, however, went behind just after 15 minutes, Djibril Cheick Ouattara freaking a header past Toaster Nsabata in the Zanaco goal. Charles Zulu leveled matters ten minutes later with a close-range header finishing off a Guily Manziba pinpoint cross.

Zanaco could have won the match but they were poor in the final third with Manziba as the biggest culprit.

Zesco’s next match is at home against Zamalek SC while Zanaco travels to Benin to face ESAE on the weekend of 29-31st December.

    This Jackson Muleka guy for TP Mazembe is a “Beast” The two goals he scored are simply out of this World! He may not be a Zambian but one has got to give credit where its due. If those goals were scored by Messi or Salah we would be talking about it and scoicla media would have been buzzing.
    I have been hearing about him but we have seen what he can do.
