Zesco United  coasted to a 3-0 home win over AS Sonidep of Niger on  Tuesday at Levy Mwanawasa  Stadium in  Ndola to advance to the 2018/2019 TOTAL CAF Champions Le1/16th round.

 

The Zambian champions qualify 5-1 on aggregate  to also see them end their  four-match winless  run at home in  continental competition  since beating  JKU of  Zanzibar  7-0 at  the same venue on February 21 in the 2018 edition of the tournament that  saw  them  subsequently  collect  one defeat and three  successive draws.

 

Kenyan international striker Jesse Were also ended his almost 20-month drought in the continental club championship dating back to May 2017, after netting a brace in the victory over Sonidep.

 

Were put Zesco ahead in the first minute  when he headed in Burundi international midfielder Enock Sabumukama's cross and completed  his  brace  in  the  55th minute  when he poked –in an assist  from new boy Mwila Phiri.

 

Chipolopolo striker Lazarus Kambole continued  his  prolific form  with Zesco's  second in the  25th minute when he  punished  Sonidep for some poor defensive feedback in  their backline.

 

The goal was Kambole’s second of this campaign after  scoring in the 2-1 first leg win away in Niamey on November 27.

 

Zesco now have a third round rendezvous with five-time champions and next door neighbours TP Mazembe of DR Congo.

 

They visit Mazembe on December 15 in the first leg before hosting the DR Congo giants in Ndola on December 22 to decide who goes through to the group stage.

 

Strangely, this will be Zesco and Mazembe’s debut competitive meeting following regular reciprocal cross-border international club friendlies over the years.
