Zesco United defied all odds on Sunday to end their 11 match away winless run in continental competition and qualify to the group stage of the 2018 CAF Champions League.

Zesco, who came into the match with seven draws and four defeats in their last away in Africa fixtures, beat ASEC Mimosa 2-1 in Abidjan to qualify 2-2 on aggregate on away goals rule.

Gagnon Badie put ASEC ahead via a 7th minute penalty but Fackson Kapumbu and Lazarus Kambole scored in the 29th a and 65th minutes respectively to hand Zesco their group stage passage.

Zesco are now Zambia’s sole 2018 CAF Champions’ League group stage campaigners after Zanaco lost 1-0 on Saturday and lost 3-1 on aggregate to be relegated to the 2018 CAF Confederation Cup last 32.

Meanwhile, Zesco are also now the only the Zambian side to have qualified for three successive continental group stage matches.

Furthermore, no Zambian club has made four appearances at that level like Zesco since 2009.

  1. H.h we know you have a scheduled opposing press briefing today. Please don’t spoil our day, please reschedule your opposing views to tomorrow….pleeeaasee!

  2. One blogger posted that ZEGA shouldn’t have travelled instead spend the resources on other programs .if you you don’t have passion for sport soccer in particular stick to politics. Old soccer adage don’t change winning team. All the best team .my appeal to teams that failed to progress learn something from ZEGA

  3. True Zega Mambo u are the Champions. We will support you! I want to encourage supporters to mobilize resources to motivate the players. Each player who will score a goal will receive K 2, 000=00

  4. I really dont like ZESCO because they are named after an electricity company that is inefficient but watching them on Sunday they were so scintillating. That is the kind of spirit Zambian teams used to have long ago. Never say never!
