Despite the threats by bad lighting, The Zambian outfit managed to secure a stunning away win

A ferocious away performance by Zanaco FC in their CAF Confederation Cup 1-3 win against Cano Sport was nearly overshadowed by bad floodlights at the Estadio de Malabo.  

The two sides were tussling in the final play-off round encounter with the winner of this two-legged affair progressing to the Group Stages.

Ziyo Tembo's first-half strike and a brace in the second-half by Guily Manziba were enough as the Bankers cruised to 3-1 win over their Equatorial Guinea counterparts.

The Zambian side's win was nearly overshadowed by a poor lighting system, however. In the 86th minute, the lights went off for a few minutes forcing the match into a halt as the referee, sides representatives, and match authority deliberated on a possible outcome.

In the other CAF Confederations Cup match, Green Eagles failed to hold on to the 1-0 lead when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Hassania Agadir of Morocco at Nkoloma Stadium.

Spencer Sautu had given the home side an early lead, but the visitors equalised through Yassine Rami in stoppage time.

Eagles will travel to travel to Morocco next week for the return leg.
