Zimbabwean representatives in the 2017 CAF Confederation Cup Ngezi Platinum have been knocked out after playing out a nil all draw against Recreativo Libolo of Angola.
Ngezi had a 2-1 deficit from the first leg in Angola a week ago which proved to be their downfall as they succumbed to a 2-1 aggregate score.
The Platinum miners needing a win wasted a handful of chances that could have easily won them the match.
The first half presented a plain game with not so many creative chances whilst the visitors were content with defending their lead.
Kevin Bulaji header in the 39th minute was denied by the woodwork with goalkeeper well beaten.
In the second half Ngezi came back a changed side pushing forward to create chances. Terrence Dzukamanja had the best chance of the game but his effort went wide after beating the goalkeeper in the 58th minute.
Tichaona Mabvura came ten minutes later but his shot hit the side netting.
First leg scorer Liberty Chakoroma managed to put the ball in the back of the net but his effort in the 71st minute was ruled offside.
Libolo were able to contain the hosts to see off the game and claim a 2-1 aggregate win.
Zimbabwe now have hopes in Caps United who are set to battle out with TP Mazembe in the 2nd leg of the First Round of their Champions League encounter.
