Masters and Atletico in a barren draw

Master Security took Lilongwe fans by surprise as they displayed good attacking football and held the Angolan side, Atletico Petroleos de Luanda to a barren draw to bow out of the CAF Confederation Cup on 5-0 aggregate on Tuesday.

The game was played at Bingu National Stadium in the Capital’s Area 48.

The second leg saw Master Security looking a changed side and the wining team not posing a threat at all.

Masters, Gerald Mkungula who was left out during the Luanda trip proved the team’s technical panel wrong as he played a gallant game and created scoring chances in both halves.

Masters had on several occasion tried to test Atletico keeper, Gerson Barros with long range efforts from Richard Chande, Mkungula and Rafiq Mussa but goalie was alert.

Master goal minder, Chimwemwe Kumkwawa saved his team in the 64th minute when he brilliantly saved a one on one situation after his defence went to sleep when Brazilian Antonio Ribeiro broke through.

The overall performance of Atletico striking force of Wilson do Carmo and Tiago Leal was not threatening and master defender, Tsanzo Dalio, Reuben Kaunda, Suwedi Limbani and John Chalamanda.

Soccer fans gave Master Security the much needed home support although they fail secure any goal at their backyard.

“ We supposed to win this game at home but the only consolation is that our players played much better in the return leg which give us hope of a better future,” Master Security Coach, Abbas Makawa explained.

He pointed that the attitude the players showed was encouraging and this shows that our players have learn something from the competition.

Atletico Coach Beto Bianchi admitted that Masters gave them a tough game as their approach towards the encounter looked different.
