Masters Security and Angola’s Atletico Petroleos de Luanda could not be separated in the CAF Confederations Cup second leg in a game of few chances at Bingu National Stadium but the Malawian side has been booted out on 0-5 goal aggregate having lost the first leg.
On Tuesday neither side could break the deadlock in a slightly cagey match.
In a mission ‘damage limitation’, the home side went flat out to attack but could not get the back of the net despite Rafick Mussa, Gerald Mkungula and Vincent Nyangulu coordinating very well with scintillating passes.
Masters could have gone one up with Juma Yatina who blasted his effort away from Petroleos goal area.
The hist goalkeeper Chimwemwe Kumkwawa was called to frustrate Tiago Azulao in the 64th minute when he brilliantly saved a one on one situation after his defence went to sleep when Brazilian Antonio Ribeiro broke through.
The overall performance of Atletico striking force of Wilson do Carmo and Tiago Leal was not threatening and master defender, Tsanzo Dalio, Reuben Kaunda, Suwedi Limbani and John Chalamanda.
Soccer fans gave Master Security the much needed home support although they fail secure any goal at their backyard.
“ We supposed to win this game at home but the only consolation is that our players played much better in the return leg which give us hope of a better future,” Master Security Coach, Abbas Makawa explained after bowing out of Confederations Cup.
He pointed that the attitude the players showed was encouraging and this shows that our players have learn something from the competition.
“ In Angola , we played well in the first half but our travel arrangements had a negative impart to our game and I hope next time will do much better than what we have now,” Makawa said.
Atletico Coach Beto Bianchi admitted that Masters gave them a tough game.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
