TP Mazembe top group

Former African champions TP Mazembe are top of Group A in the CAF Champions League after settling for a goalless draw against AS Vita in Kinshasa on Sunday.

The two teams finished with 11 points each, but the DR Congo champions TP Mazembe have a better goal difference.

AS Vita played without their suspended striker Dady Birori. The player was last week suspended by CAF after he was found holding two different names featuring for his club and another for the Rwanda national side.

Birori’s issue led to the disqualification of Rwanda from the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Yunus Junior Ssentamu, who scored the lone goal against Zamalek two weeks ago to qualify for the semis, failed to find the net this time round. The Ugandan striker kept the TP Mazembe defenders on their toes.

TP Mazembe, who won the first leg when they met in Lubumbashi few months ago, tried to pin down the AS Vita team but failed to score.
