Zesco secure semifinal date against Mamelodi Sundowns

Sports Zesco secure semifinal date against Mamelodi Sundowns

Zesco United finished second in Group A after they were held to a 1-1 home draw by Wydad Casablanca.

The result some what made up for the first leg defeat in Morocco on June 29 when Wydad beat Zesco 2-0 to hand George Lwandamina’s side their only Group A defeat.

David Owino put Zesco ahead in the 16th minute when he headed in John Chingandu’s corner in a first half the home side dominated.

Wydad improved after the break and equalized in the 56th minute through their ex-Nigeria Under-23 striker Chisom Chikatara who fired in a sweet curling shot in the 56th minute.

The visitors then gave Zesco a late scare when Congo-Brazzaville striker Fabrivce Ondama fired wide at point blank range in the 89th minute to deny Wydad a Group A double over their hosts.

Zesco host Sundowns in the semifinal first leg on September 17 and later travel to Pretoria for the decider on September 24.

Wydad will visit Zamalek in the first leg before hosting the Egyptians in Rabat.

  1. If it was Nkana Red Devils i could have attended not ba Zega just buying the league with their money but with no following. Anyway hard luck otherwise mwa Kamanga kuwayawayafye

  2. This is one game in which I did not exactly know what results I wanted. A win for Zesco and they meet Zamalek in the semi-finals or a loss/draw and meet Sundowns. Sundowns might just be a banana peel, and there would have been a chance for a Southern African derby in the final had the other permutation occurred.

    Ba Kalampa no bulimi bwakale! Just accept, ZEGA has been consistent…

  3. Congratulations boys… you should be the ones playing in place of Chipolopolo…. may be we could earn some dissent results at National level, as well.
