Action between Super Sport and Zesco United

Davis Kasirye was part of the Zesco United team that worked for a barren draw with SuperSport United in the first leg of the CAF Confederation Cup quarter final at Lucas Moripe Stadium in Pretoria.

In the first ever meeting of the two clubs, both sides virtually struggled to find the back of the net.

SuperSport United had a chance to take the lead in the 6th minute but Bradley Grobler missed the chance off a Grant Kekana ball.

Grobler managed to score in the moments ahead although his strike was denied by a handball call. Sipho Mbule later replaced Grobler.

Kenyan international Jesse Were had a chance to test the Matsatsantsa but missed from close range 9 minutes into the second half.

Were was again at it with a shot tipped over by goalie Ronwen Williams.

Kasirye was only introduced in the final 3 minutes of the game as Maybin Kalengo got stretched off after a knock.

Zambia’s Defence Minister Davies Chama and the country’s High Commissioner Emmanuel Mwamba watched the nation.

Meanwhile, Sudan’s Hilal Obeid lost 2-1 at home to TP Mazembe, FUS Rabat from Morocco won at home 1-0 against Tunisia’s CS Sfaxien and MC Alger of Algeria also won 1-0 against Tunisia’s Club Africain in Algeris.

The return leg will be played next weekend. Zesco United will host the return leg on Saturday, 23rd September at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.
