Al Ahly fire warning shot at Zesco United

Sports Al Ahly fire warning shot at Zesco United

Al Ahly on Wednesday night overturned the order in Group A after ending Wydad Casablanca’s 15 year old unbeaten home record in continental action to give their hosts in August’s Zesco United something to ponder about.

The record 8-time African champions beat Group A leaders Wydad 1-0 away in Rabat to collect their first win in the league phase of this years competition.

Rami Rabia headed in the games lone goal in the 46th minute to send ripples in Group A.

Wydad were unbeaten at home in continental cup action action since 2003 where they lost 1-0 to Etoile du Sahel in the defunct CAF Cup Winners Cup semifinals to see the Tunisians advance 3-0 on aggregate.

With that result, Al Ahly leave the basement of Group A for the first time to relegate ASEC Mimosa of Cote d’Ivoire from 3rd to bottom of the log tied on 4 points.

Al Ahly now hosts Zesco on August 12 in a make-or-break, penultimate Group A match at home in Egypt.

Meanwhile, Wydad continue to lead Group A tied with Zesco on 7 points after both sides early semifinal hopes were halted on Wednesday.

Zesco rallied to draw 1-1 away at ASEC in Abidjan.

  1. That was a spirited fight zescolo. you’re are well representing the nation. keep on keeping on. One thing George Chicken and most coaches in zed have to work on is being reactive in football. Why should teams play well under pressure. That potential that is unleashed when you are down should be unleashed before you even go down. We are being very reactive in the games and it may cost us. This is what has cost the national team, Nkana, Power just to mention a few.

  2. I ENJOYED EVERY MOMENT OF THE ZESCO GAME IN ABDJAN IVORY COAST AND IF ZESCO MAINTAINS THE SAME RYTHEM THEY WILL GO VERY FAR AWAY. I HAVE NOT BEEN WATCHING LOCAL LEAGUE GAMES BUT THIS HAS MOTIVATED ME AND WILL CONTINUE RALLYING BEHIND ZESCO THOUGH I HAVE A WARIORS SUPPORTER FOR OVER 45YEARS. I WISH THE BEST TO ZESCO PLAYERS TECHNICAL BENCH AND MANAGEMENT FOR A JOB WELL DONE.THE NEXT GAME JUST HAMMER THE ARABS AT THEIR DOOR STEPS THE DAYS OF ARAB TEAM DOMINATION IS OVER. INFACT ZESCO SHOULD GET USED TO PALYING UNDER FLOOD LIGHTS THIS IS WHAT KILLS US. SOME PLAYERS MAY HAVE PROBLEMS PLAYING UNDER SUCH ENVIRONMENTS. PLAY MORE PRACTICE GAMES UNDER FLOOD LIGHTS. WHERE IS CHICKEN GEORGE THE POACHER?
