TP win sees Berekum off



Four-time winners TP Mazembe booked their place in the African Champions League semifinal after two second-half goals gave them a 2-0 victory over already-qualified Ahly in Lubumbashi on Sunday.

This means that Ghana’s Champions League campaigners Berekum Chelsea have been knocked out of the competition. Tanzanian internationals Mbwana Samatta and Deo Kanda cranked it up a notch after the break following a handful of dreadful defensive mistakes to give Mazembe all three points.

Both sides now have ten points on top of Group B, boasting an unassailable five-point lead over third-placed Berekum Chelsea of Ghana with one match to go. Chelsea, in their game, went a goal down after Ibrahim Mohammed was set up by Abdoulaye Cisse to score after 13 minutes.

Awudu Nafiu equalised 22 minutes later and it finished that way.

Ahly have to beat Cairo rivals Zamalek and hope Mazembe do not overcome Chelsea in their last game to advance as the group winners, as the DR Congo side enjoy a better head-to-head record. The Red Devils are hoping to avoid a tricky semi-final clash against Group A leaders Esperance of Tunisia, who knocked them out at the same stage two years ago on the away-goals rule following a 2-2 aggregate draw.

Zamalek 1-1 Berekum Chelsea
