Yanga crash out after barren draw

Mainland champions Young Africans have crashed out of the CAF Champions League at the hands of Zambian champions Zanaco FC.

The first round, return leg match played at the National Stadium in Lusaka yesterday ended in a barren draw, enabling Zanaco to qualify for the group stage with an away goal advantage as they scored in Dar es Salaam.

Zanaco came from behind to draw 1-1 with Yanga in the first leg match at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam last Saturday.

Zanaco also eliminated Yanga in the same competition in 2006. Yanga won 2-1 in the first leg in Dar es Salaam and Zanaco won 2-0 in the return leg in Lusaka.
