TP Mazembe have advanced to the CAF Champions League group stage after a 1-0 home win over Sewe Sport.

Mazembe qualified to the group league stage in May on away goals rule after a 2-2 aggregate scoreline.

The DR Congo side were unlucky not to take a 1-0 lead into the break awhen Zambia striker Given Singuluma shot came off the post in the 13th minute.

Mazembe coach Patrice Carteron then watched in frustration in the 54th minute when Chipolopolo striker Jonas Sakuwaha's penalty kick was parried by Sewe goalkeeper Sylvain Gbohouo.

The Lubumbashi side secured their group stage passage in the 66th minute through their Tanzania international Mbwana Samatta to break the Ivorian's hearts.

Mazembe will know their group stage opponents on April 29 when the draws are made in Cairo.
