ZESCO United Players cerebrate the second Goal

Zesco United on Sunday continued a good weekend for the Zambian clubs in continental action this weekend when they beat Kaizer Chiefs 3-1 at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola in a 2018/19 CAF Confederation Cup pre-group stage first leg tie.

Zesco’s victory came just 24 hours after Nkana beat San Pedro of Cote d’Ivoire 3-0 up the road at Nkana Stadium in Kitwe in the first leg of the same competition.

The game at Levy didn’t disappoint with both sides serving up an entertaining Southern African derby in which Zesco did all the scoring while Chiefs dictate the pace led by midfielders Lebogang Manyama and Khama Billiat.

Lazarus Kambole broke the deadlock in the 24th minute before Jesse Were added the second from the spot in the 29th minute after he was brought down by Teenage Radebe.

Billiat ensured Chiefs went into the break armed with a goal when he beat three defenders in the 43rd minute.

Were then completed his brace in the 54th minute but Chiefs felt an injustice in the 68th minute when Billiat’s goal was mysteriously ruled out for offside.

Billat, though, continued terrorize Zesco’s defence but was frustrated by an inspired Jacob Banda in goals for Zesco.

Meanwhile, the two sides meet in the final leg on January 20 in a 20h00 kickoff at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg with Zesco needing just a draw while Chiefs must win 2-0 to deny the former a place in the group stage that begins on February 1.

  1. Chiefs are rough at home mukose baice. Chiefs are one of the most cerebrated teams in SA.
    Play attacking game. Take the war to their own half and be rough!!!
    Play clean and win clean unlike some parties that keep on cheating!!!!

  2. Congrats Zesco,but let’s find means and ways of bringing more supporters at the stadium, you will see at FNB stadium it will be full to the capacity. If it means reducing the price please do so. Players are always 11 but supporters are the 12th on the pitch.

  7. Football they are winning but coming to their main duty is a challenge. People have intermittent power supply for over a week now in Foxdale, Roma, Meanwood and so on. And the previous months as well
