Horoya AC and Zamalek failed to win their final matches in the 2021-22 CAF Champions League campaign Friday.
Guinean champions Horoya had to fight back to hold South African side AmaZulu FC to a 1-1 draw at the General Lansana Conté Stadium in Conakry.
Salif Coulibaly’s own-goal cancelled out Dramane Nikiema’s opening goal which had put Horoya in the lead in a Group B clash.
Therefore, Horoya and AmaZulu finished fourth and third in the group standings respectively.
While Zamalek ended their disappointing Group D campaign with a 0-0 draw against Angolan side Sagrada Esperança at the Cairo International Stadium in Cairo.
Therefore, the Egyptian giants, who are five-time African champions, finished third on the group standings having failed to record a single win.
Zamalek’s hopes of reaching the quarter-finals had already ended coming into this encounter, while Esperança finished fourth on the table.
Lastly, Etoile du Sahel edged out Botswana side Jwaneng Galaxy in a five-goal thriller as they emerged 3-2 winners at the Stade Hammadi Agrebi in Tunis.
Vinny Kombe, Baligh Jemmali and Yassine Amri all scored for Etoile, who won the 2007 Champions League title, and the Tunisian giants finished third on the Group C table.
Gilbert Baruti hit the back of the net twice for Galaxy who finished fourth on the standings in what was their debut season in the group stage.
