Zesco United coach Zlatko Krmpotic has pointed out to lack of luck in their exit of continental CAF Confederations Cup in the hands of SuperSport united of South Africa.
Despite leading 2-1 in injury time, a Thuso Phala strike at the death ensured United continued their journey in Africa's second most prestigious club competition behind the CAF Champions League.
-This is a luck issue. We had in the first half opportunities to score. Maybin Kalengo missed about four good opportunities, Krmpotic told the Lusaka Times.
-Jesse Were and Patrick Kongolo also failed to score. Congratulations to my players they played well. Congratulations to our opponents they were good, he told SuperSport.
After drawing the first leg 0-0 against the South African Premiership outfit in Pretoria, Zesco were held to a 2-2 draw at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola last Saturday. This meant Matsatsantsa progressed to the semifinals at the expense of their hosts.
SuperSport has been drawn to face Tunisia's Club Africain in the last four with the first leg of the semifinal to be held on 29 September.
