Zanaco collected a valuable away goal in Tanzania on Saturday in their 2017 CAF Champions League clash against George Lwandamina’s Young Africans.
The 2016 FAZ Super Division champions rallied from one-down in the first half to hold Young Africans 1-1 in Dar-es-Salaam.
Simon Msvua put Young Africans ahead in the 40th minute.
Ghana-born striker Kwame Attram equalized for Zanaco in the 77th minute to ensure they take a precious goal for the return leg at Nkoloma Stadium on March 18.
A home draw for Zanaco next weekend should be enough to see them through to the Champions League group stage.
Defeat for Lwandamina will see Young Africans relegated to the CAF Confederation Cup where the potential last 36 draw with his former club Zesco United lies in store.
