Cape Town - Zesco United coach Zlatko Krmpotic believes his team lost out in the CAF Confederations Cup quarter-final to SuperSport United, because luck was not on Team Ya Ziko's side.

After drawing the first leg 0-0 against the South African Premiership outfit in Pretoria, Zesco were held to a 2-2 draw at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola last Saturday. This meant Matsatsantsa progressed to the semi-finals at the expense of their hosts.

Despite leading 2-1 in injury time, a Thuso Phala strike at the death ensured United continued their journey in Africa's second most prestigious club competition behind the CAF Champions League.

Krmpotic told the Lusaka Times, "This is a luck issue. We had in the first half opportunities to score. Maybin Kalengo missed about four good opportunities.

"Jesse Were and Patrick Kongolo also failed to score. Congratulations to my players they played well. Congratulations to our opponents they were good."

Meanwhile, Matsatsantsa have been drawn to face Tunisia's Club Africain in the last four with the first leg of the semi-final to be held on 29 September. The second semi sees Congo's TP Mazembe face Morocco's Fath Union Sport.
