Azam FC have been eliminated from the Caf Confederation Cup after falling to Triangle United by a solitary goal on Saturday afternoon.

After the break, Collins Duwa's strike ended the Tanzanian FA champions hopes and gave the Zimbabweans an aggregate 2-0 scoreline.

Despite a spirited performance from the Etienne Ndayiragije led side late in the game, Triangle held on to advance. The recent result casts doubt over the future of the Burundian coach in the team.

United will now turn their attention to the final round where they will be paired with a team that will be eliminated from the Caf Champions League.
