Tusker FC out of CAF Champions League Competition.

Tusker FC has failed to overturn their first leg loss to Egyptian champions Zamalek SC today, in a match played in Borg El Arab Stadium in Alexandria, Egypt.

The Brewers were forced to substitute Charles Momanyi for Hum after the former got injured in the 2nd minute of the match. 

Zamalek SC took an early lead from Youssef Ibrahim Obama's strike in the 11th minute. Saif El-Giziri doubled the hosts' lead in the 19th minute; sinking Tusker FC's hopes of qualifying for the CAF Champions League group stages.

Tusker FC made two substitutions in the 57th minute with Ibrahim and Muchiri getting substituted for Njuguna and Shami in a bid to sharpen their striking force.

However, things worsened for Tusker FC as they conceded two more goals in two minutes - Bencharki scored his first in the 72nd minute as Obama completed his brace in the 74th minute.

Tusker FC has lost the fixture on a 5-0 aggregate and will be relegated to the CAF Confederation Cup as Zamalek proceeds to the group stages of CAF Champions League.
