Nkana suffer CAF Confed Cup setback

Sports Nkana suffer CAF Confed Cup setback

CR Belouizdad dealt Nkana’s 2018 CAF Confederation Cup campaign ambitions a big blow after beating their Zambian guests 3-0 tonight in Algiers.

The result brings back still fresh memories of another Zambia’s clubs early demise in the same competition last month.

Green Buffaloes lost 4-0 away to another North African side, Al Masry of Egypt, in the same competition in February where they made a preliminary round exit via a 5-2 aggregate loss.

Meanwhile, Nkana looked comfortable when they went 0-0 into the break with their Algerian hosts.

But Bechou Youcef put Belouizdad ahead in the 47th minute, and then Lemhane added the second in the 59th minute before Draoui Zakaria ensured they gave Nkana a mountain to climb in the final leg with the last goal in the 71st minute.

Nkana must now score four goals without reply on March 17 in Kitwe to maintain their interest in the CAF Confederation Cup.


  1. i watched the game nkana is a useless team. No focus just kicking the ball forward all the time without logic. They need to hold the ball and compose themselves that is how chances are created.

  2. The same old song. Anyway no reasonable soccer follower expected different result. All the best ba neighbours

    • Good ,lets see if the Jerabos will reverse the score line.Maybe tell Religious minister to call for another prayer meetingtat the black mountain.

  3. Comment: oooo kalampa kulifishi, lekeleni zega mambo umwine wacila. I thot in the first place that nkana can do wonders in this competition without checkihg their agility, mayo kanshi niba mbulifye. Kip up guyz.

  4. I new that they will be thumped.Was even surprised that people were expecting miracles from Nkana.Muleikalafye.They are now out because they cant score four goals patali.
