Zanaco and Zesco looking to maintain continental dreams

Sports Zanaco and Zesco looking to maintain continental dreams

Zanaco and Zesco United on Saturday hope to keep Zambia’s interest in 2017 continental club competition alive when they take to the field in their respective home and away games.

In the 2017 CAF Champions League, Zanaco hosts Young Africans of Tanzania in a first round, final leg match at National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka.

It will be the first time Zanaco will play a CAF club cup match at Heroes after hosting Nkana in the league and losing to Zesco in the Barclays Cup final there in 2016.

Zanaco and Young Africans are level at 1-1 after striker Kwame Attram equalised in the 77th minute for the Zambian champions to cancel out Simon Msuva 40th minute opener for Yanga.

A 0-0 draw should be enough to send Zanaco through on away goals rule.

The match will also see George Lwandamina’s first return to Zambia since leaving Zesco last November to take up the Young Africans job.

Loser will be relegated to the CAF Confederation Cup pre-group stage in April.

And in Bujumbura, Burundi, Zesco battle Le Messager Ngozi in a CAF Confederation Cup first round, final leg fixture.

Zesco need to draw to also advanced after beating Ngozi 2-0 in the first leg match on March 10 in Ndola.

Meanwhile, Zesco welcome back goalkeeper Jacob Banda who missed the first leg due to suspension but defender Simon Silwimba will miss the match due to an injury he sustained in the first leg win.
