Zesco extend CAF drought after home draw

Sports Zesco extend CAF drought after home draw

Zesco United’s mini -drought in the 2018 CAF Champions League continued on Tuesday when they were held to a 0-0 home draw by Primeiro de Agosto of Angola.

The draw saw Zesco still winless in Group D after three rounds of matches played, and to now top it all, have drawn both their home games that they have sandwiched with a 2-1 away draw to leaders Etoile du Sahel from last May.

Star of the show at Levy was Agosto goalkeeper Tony denied Jesse Were in the first minute and Lazarus Kambole twice in the 6th and 27th minute.

Tony was back in action in the 37th minute this time to deny Zambia Under-20 striker Lameck Banda.

But the second half was flat in which Agosto mitigated their poor display in the first half with a more solid defensive display that suffocated Zesco from making any dangerous as far as midfield.

Zesco are now five points behind, leaders Etoile du Sahel of Tunisia who beat second placed Mbabane Swallows 3-0 away in eSwatini on the same date.

Etoile and Swallows have 7 and 4 points respectively with three games left to decide the top two quarterfinal slots in Group D.

Meanwhile, Zesco must now beat Agosto away in Luanda on July 28 to keep their interest in the competition alive.
