Green Eagles’ debut continental competition campaign ended on Saturday night away in Algeria where they were beaten 2-1 by NA Hussein Dey in Algiers.
Eagles exited the competition by the same margin following a 2-1 home draw in Lusaka on December 15 at Nkoloma Stadium.
But it was Eagles who took the early lead through a Collins Mulenga 3rd minute free kick.
Dey, though, hit back in the 33rd minute captain Ahmed Gasmi equalized from the penalty spot after he was fouled by Eagles defender Gift Wamundila.
Gasmi then completed his brace deep into stoppage time of the final period to send Eagles out of the competition to book Dey’s place in January’s pre-group stage.
