AmaZulu stun TP Mazembe in Lubumbashi

AmaZulu stun TP Mazembe in Lubumbashi

Debutantes AmaZulu of South Africa produced one of the biggest Champions League shock, when they defeated DR Congo giants and five-time African chmapions TP Mazembe on away goals’ rule, after holding them to a 1-1 draw in Lubumbashi.

A goalless draw last weekend in Durban meant Mazembe had to win at home to advance to the group stage.

But Les Corbeaux had to face a setback when Bongi Ntuli gave AmaZulu the lead after 38 minutes.

Despite Mazembe numerous chances over both halves, they had to wait till the fifth minute of second half injury time to find a very late equalizer through Adam Bossu.

A draw that was not enough to save Mazembe from an embarrassing exit.

AmaZulu players and their coach Benni McCarthy celebrated wildly as their fairytale debut continues to the lucrative group stage.
