Zesco United look to upset the odds in African Champions League semifinals

Zesco United have defied the odds to reach the semifinals of the African Champions League.

The only previous time two southern African clubs battled each other for a place in the African Champions League final, South Africa's Mamelodi Sundowns edged Angola's Petro Atletico after a penalty shootout back in 2001.

Can Mamelodi Sundowns make the most of their second chance and win the African Champions League?

On Tuesday, 34 days after they were eliminated from the African Champions League, big-spending South African club Mamelodi Sundowns were reinstated.

That such a turnaround came to pass is due to the most extraordinary stroke of good fortune, although how the error which led to it was spotted only at this late hour must be of concern and acute embarrassment to the Confederation of African Football.

Sundowns' reprieve came after the disqualification of AS Vita Club from the Democratic Republic of...
