CAF CL: Zesco in tricky Mazembe challenge

CAF CL: Zesco in tricky Mazembe challenge

Zambia’s representatives in the 2019/20 CAF Champions League, Zesco United will tomorrow host five-time African Champions, TP Mazembe in a Group A clash of titans on match-day-two at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.

The Ndola giants started strong on matchday one away in Angola with a 1-1 draw against Primeiro de Agosto at Estadio 11 de Novembro in Luanda.

TP Mazembe had an even better matchday one as they thrashed fellow five-time African Champions Zamalek 3-0 with Jackson Muleka netting a brace at the Stade TP Mazembe in Lubumbashi, DR Congo.

The two teams met last year with Zesco United losing 1-0 in DR Congo and forcing a 1-all home draw at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in the pre-group stage of the CAF Champions League that saw Mazembe qualify to the group stage and the Zambian side demoted to the CAF Confederation Cup.

Lwandamina is expected to deploy an attack-minded line up with Kenyan striker Jesse Jackson Were leading the attack.

Adrian Chama and Clement Mwape are likely to partner in defense and will need to be at their best to keep in form Muleka and legendary Trezor Mputu at bay.
