Zanaco on Saturday sweated to earn a home draw against Al Ahly of Egypt to see their 2017 CAF Champions League quarterfinals qualification delayed to their last Group D match next weekend.

Al Ahly battled but found a second best Zanaco resilient and finished 0-0 away at National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka.

The spotlight in the match was on Zanaco goalkeeper Toaster Nsabata who denied .Abdalla Bekhit ,Ahmed Monem and Walid Ebeid sure chances before Oluwafemi Ajayi saw his 76th minute shot come off the post.

The result sees Zanaco needing an away draw at Wydad Casablanca this coming weekend in Morocco to secure their quarterfinal place.

Victory on Saturday would have seen Zanaco through to the last 8 with a match spare.

Zanaco have 11 points, Al Ahly have 8 and are 3rd after Wydad beat Cotonsport 2-0 away in Cameroon to rise to 9 points.

Cotonsport have zero points after five games played and travel to Egypt for their final game against Al Ahly.

  1. The 0-0 result might come back to haunt Numba Mumamba’s side. A loss away to Wydad in the final group game on 8 July, couple with an expected cricket home win for Al Ahly against winless Cotonsport, will see ZANACO eliminated in hat will be the bankers’ first loss in the competition.

  2. The ZANACO Coach is short sigted and minded, HOW THE HELL ON EARTH U DRAW AT HOME? NOW HE MUST BE FIRED AND REPLACE HIM WITH HERVE RENARD WHO IS JOBLESS
