Zesco triumph over Ngozi

Sports Zesco triumph over Ngozi

New coach Zlatko Krmpotic began his tenure as Zesco United on Friday night with a debut home win when they overcome Le Messager Ngozi of Burundi.

Krmpotic, who was appointed Zesco coach in February, guided his team to a 2-0 victory over Ngozi in a 2017 CAF Confederation Cup first round, first leg match at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.

The 2016 CAF Champions League semifinalists were in command against a Ngozi side that did not disappoint but failed to figure out an experienced Zesco.

Goals from Jackson Mwanza and Kondwani Mtonga in the 33rd and 75th minutes respectively sealed Zesco’s first leg win over Ngozi.

It could have been 3-0 but referee Norman Matemera ruled out Idris Mbombo’s 68th minute goal for offside.

Zesco now travel to Bujumbura on March 18 for the final leg to decide who goes through to April’s pre-group stage.
