Kinshasa, March 17th, 2021 (CPA).- The chances of qualification of TP Mazembe of DR Congo are hanging by a thread after the second defeat of Lushois ravens in front of Mamelodi Sundowns of South Africa (0-1), on Tuesday March 16th in trip to Pretoria, on behalf of the 4th day of group B of the 25th champions league of the African Football Confederation (CAF).
Last of his group with 2 points, one of the most successful clubs in African interclub competitions after the Egyptians of Al Ahly no longer has his destiny in hand, insofar as he is forced to negotiate a victory during his trip to Algeria against CR Belouizdad, before still trying to win at home against Al Hilal of Sudan, at the end of the group stage.
His executioner from Lubumbashi and Pretoria has practically validated his ticket to the quarter-finals, especially as he has 12 points in 4 outings. He leaves far behind Al Hilal and CR Belouizadad with 3 points each. This means that the second group B ticket for the quarter-finals will be awarded at the end of the 6th and last day.
Casablanca’s Wydad also qualified
The Moroccans of Widad of Casablanca also validated their ticket for this stage of the champion’s league thanks to the draw they brought from Guinea against Horoya AC (0-0), in group C. The 2nd qualifying place in group C should be played between HAC and Kaizer Chiefs. The two teams are tied by 5 points following the draw in Angola between the South Africans and Petro Atletico (0-0). Last with 4 points behind, the Angolans have certainly missed their last chance … ACP/
