Zesco United have through to the 2017 CAF Confederation Cup pre-group stage.

Zlatko Krmpotic’s side toiled to finish 2-2 away to Le Messager Ngozi of Burundi on Saturday to secure a 4-2 aggregate win in Bujumbura.

All four goals came in the second half that saw Emock Sabumukama put Ngozi 1-0 ahead in the 49th minute.

Zesco equalised in the 61st minute through striker Jesse Were but were harshly denied another clear goal in the 73rd minute.

This is after defender David Owino’s goal was disallowed after he seemingly fouled Ngozi goalkeeper Dieuolomme Ntibahezwa before the had ball crossed the line.

Zesco were again hit by another setback when Abdoul Amini put Ngozi back in the lead in the 86th minute.

But Owino ended stubborn Ngozi’s hopes of a famous win over the 2016 CAF Champions League semifinalists with a dramatic equalizer deep inside the four minutes of stoppage time.

Zesco now await to know their pre group stage opponents in April when the roll of losers from this weekend’s CAF Champions League pre-group stage stage matches is completed on Sunday and draw later conducted in Cairo.

    We need a nick name for this coach. Matimba Nkoje will lose his tongue if we keep it like this. Is there an animal he looks like that easy to pronounce? Congratulations to Zegamambo.
    I remember matimba Konje enjoying commenting the u20 South African game ” Boyd Musonda is show a yellow card after pulling Malepe…”
