On the fateful day, Makepekepe were trailing by three goals before the half hour mark. Al Ahli Tripoli captain Samea Derbali grabbed a brace, and Salem Ablo scored one in the first half. Muaid Salam nailed the final nail on the Caps coffin with a low shot beating Jorum Muchambo in goals for the home side all systems out.

Makepekepe got their face savers from Ronald Pfumbidzai and Hardlife Zvirekwi just before full time.

"We lacked cohesion in our team and they punished us for that. We still have 3 more games to play and as of now no team can be ruled out. we are still in the race and we can sail through though we need to work harder to archive this, " Chitembwe said.

Group B log leaders, Zamalek drew with USM Alger on the same day to go on 5 points. USM and Tripoli are tied on 4 points whilst United anchor the group with 3 points.
