TP Mazembe on Sunday beat AS Vita 1-0 at home in their 2014 CAF Champions League Group B DR Congo derby showdown at Kamalondo Stadium in Lubumbashi.


The meeting was the two sides second this month after Mazembe beat Vita by the same scoreline on May 11 in a 2013/2014 DR Congo league play-off decider that was marred by the death of 15 fans in a post-match riot in Kinshasa.


Meanwhile, Sundays home  victory handed handed Mazembe its first Group B  win after suffering a 1-0 away defeat to Al Hilal of Sudan in Khartoum on match-day-one of league phase of the competition on May 16.


The two sides went scoreless into the break but Vita striker Firmin Mubele and Mazembe midfielder Gladson Awako had a good chances each going begging in the 8th and 17th minutes respectively.


However, the deadlock was broken in the 62nd minute through Mazembe’s Tanzanian international striker Mbwana Samatta who scored to put the four-time champions Group A campaign back on track.


Despite the win, Mazembe remain bottom of Group A but only on goal difference with all four sides tied on three points from two rounds of match games played.


Mazembe now turn their focus to leaders Zamalek of Egypt whom they host on June 7 while Vita travel to Khartoum to play Al Hilal on the same date.
