CAF Champions League Yanga SC revive hopes with huge win against Medeama

Tanzanian giants Young Africans (Yanga SC) revived their CAF Champions League hopes with an emphatic 3-0 home victory over 10-man Medeama at Benjamin Mkapa Stadium on Wednesday.

Pacome Zouzoua broke the deadlock for the hosts in the 31st minute before second-half strikes from Bakari Mwamnyeto and Mudathiri Yahya sealed the win. The result left Yanga second in Group D on goal difference behind leaders Al Ahly heading into the final two rounds.

It was a very different story for bottom side Medeama, who saw Jonathan Sowah sent off late on to compound a miserable night after receiving his second yellow card of the match. The heavy loss leaves the Ghanaian outfit on four points and facing a battle to progress into the knockout stage.

With Al Ahly facing crunch clashes with group opponents Medeama and Yanga, the Tanzanian club will fancy their chances of hunting down the Egyptians.
