Zesco and Agosto out of CAF Champions League Quarterfinal Race

Share

Zesco United’s 2019/2020 CAF Champions League Group C quarterfinal interest is over following a 1-1 home draw against Premiero de Agosto of Angola at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola today.

The result left Zesco and Agosto on 3 points at the end of their penultimate Group A fixture- five points behind second placed Zamalek while TP Mazembe lead on 11 points after the latter duo drew 0-0 in Friday night’s top-two clash in Cairo.

Meanwhile, Zesco and Agosto went into the break scoreless before Winston Kalengo broke the deadlock in the 49th minute.

But Agosto shrugged off Zesco’s pressure to punish their hosts when Manuel Alfonso slalomed through the hosts’ defence to fire in a booming shot in the 68th minute to see them share the spoils and end both their hitherto slim last eight ambitions.

Zesco and Agosto now play for final Group A classification away to Mazembe in DR Congo and home in Angola against Zamalek respectively.

  1. Zesco should fire Lwandamina. A coach shouldn’t look like he sleeps in the KITCHEN. He has played his roles at Zesco and has nothing new or further to offer. The earlier Zesco realists this the better

  2. With ANDREW KAMANGA at the helm Zambian fotball will not go anywhere. FAZ is like a fish that has become rotten at the head. FAZ needs an overhaul.

  4. Nothing is the problem with players and coach, just load shedding. Maybe oruso, the players are not happy with Zesco tariff incliments. Zeskolo is not the most popular company in Zambia today, they dont seem to know what they are doing. Soccer results are just a glimpse.
