Vipers SC fail to beat TP Mazembe at home

Vipers SC and TP Mazembe were locked in a 0-0 draw in the first leg of the second round in the CAF Champions League at the St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende on Saturday.

It was an evenly contested cagey first half, low on clear-cut goalscoring opportunities from either and it took up to 15 minutes until the first sight of threat.

In the 15th minute, Mazembe’s Ernest Luzolo Nsita threatened with a powerful shot from outside the box but was superbly denied by goalkeeper Alfred Macumu Mudekereza.

At the stroke of halftime, the Venoms nearly broke the deadlock but Olivier Osomba’s header from a Najib Yiga corner missed the target by a few inches.

The guests returned for the second half the better side and thought they had scored through Gloire Mujaya but his header sailed over the crossbar.

Milton Karisa was put through on goal by Sentamu in the 50th minute but was a little too late to add the finishing touch.

In the 67th minutes, Augustine Oladapo surprised Mudekereza with a stinging shot but the custodian was equal to the challenge.


The two will meet in the second leg on Saturday in Lubumbashi with a place in the groups at stake.
