Mazembe, Esperance, Ahly in Champions League semis

BBC Sport - September 12, 2010 7:00 PM
TP Mazembe

Defending champions TP Mazembe, six-time champions Al Ahly of Egypt and Tunisian giants Esperance are through to the semi-finals of the African Champions League.

TP Mazembe beat Zimbabwe's Dynamos 2-1 in Lubumbashi on Sunday.

The DR Congo club had two goals disallowed in the first half.

Alain Kaluyituka and Given Singuluma put TP Mazembe 2-0 up in the second half, before Thabani Kamusoko scored a consolation for the visitors.

Dynamos had to rely on a team of youngsters as seven of their regulars were missing due to injury or suspension.

TP Mazembe are now joint top of Group A with ten points along with Esperance of Tunisia who were held 2-2 at home by Entente Setif of Algeria on Saturday.

Mid-year signing Youcef Ghazali opened the scoring early on for the visitors.

The 22-year-old then levelled close to full-time after goals from Oussama Darragi and Mejdi Traoui had nudged the Tunisians ahead.

Both Esperance and TP Mazembe have the same number of points and the same goal difference.

Each will be targeting a good result next weekend so as to finish top of the group.

Six-time African champions Al Ahly overcame Heartland 2-1 in Cairo to qualify for the last four of the African Champions League.

Ahmed Fathy opened the scoring for the home side halfway through the first half with Mohammed Fadl doubling their advantage shortly after half-time.

Emmanuel Nwachi struck back shortly after for Heartland, but the Nigerians were unable to get the result they needed to fulfil their goal of reaching the semi-finals.

JS Kabylie, meanwhile, maintained their unbeaten run in this year's Champions League with a 1-0 win over Ismaili on Friday.

Nigerian import Izu Azuka's goal four minutes from time settled the tie as the Algerians won again in Tizi Ouzu.
