SuperSport beat Zesco on away goal rule to reach the semi-finals of the Caf Confederation Cup this past weekend.

The sides played to a goalless draw in the first leg in Pretoria and then drew 2-2 in the return leg in Zambia.

“This is a luck issue. We had in the first half opportunities to score. Maybin Kalengo missed about four good opportunities,” Krmpotic told Lusaka Times.

“Jesse Were and Patrick Kongolo also failed to score. Congratulations to my players they played well. Congratulations to our opponents they were good.”

Matsatsantsa will now face Tunisia’s Club Africain in the semi-finals at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday.
