Buffaloes group stage hopes dented


The reigning Eswatini Champions Young Buffaloes’ dream of reaching the group stages of the 2020/21 CAF Champions League are now slim following their 2-2 draw against AS Vita club.

The two sides clashed at Mavuso Sports Centre, in Eswatini in the first round encounter of the continent’s premier club competition on Tuesday.

The home side opened the scoring through Promise Dlamini in the 44th minue before Bongwa Matsebula increased the lead, a minute into the second half.

But the visitors pulled one back in the 86th minute through Fiston Mayele and a late equaliser via a Ricky Tulengi penalty.

Buffaloes will travel to the DRC on January, 6 for the return leg.
