Thabang Sesinyi scored to give Jwaneng Galaxy of Botswana a stunning 1-0 away victory over Wydad Casablanca of Morocco on Saturday in a CAF Champions League first-round group match.
Sesinyi followed up scoring twice in qualifiers by netting on 33 minutes with a chip over goalkeeper Youssef el Motie after intercepting a weak back pass in Marrakesh.
It was the second setback for three-time African champions Wydad during November after losing the final of the inaugural African Football League to Mamelodi Sundowns of South Africa.
Jwaneng upset Vipers of Uganda and Orlando Pirates of South Africa this season to reach the 16-team group stage of the premier African club competition.
But the minnows were given no chance of preventing annual Champions League title contenders Wydad starting their Group B campaign with a victory.
When the Botswana outfit reached the group stage once before in 2022, they struggled and secured only one point from a possible 18.
Victory for Jwaneng took them to the top of the table, two points ahead of Simba of Tanzania and ASEC Mimosas of the Ivory Coast, who drew 1-1 in Dar es Salaam.
Burundian Saidi Ntibazonkiza converted a penalty just before halftime for the hosts and Serge Pokou equalised on 77 minutes with his third goal of the campaign. —SuperSport.
