Zambian Clatous Chama scored a hattrick for Wekundu wa Msimbazi in the massive win with Congolese Jean beleke and Malian Sadio Kanoute adding a brace each in the massive victory.

With the win, Simba cemented their hold on second spot as they moved to nine points, five ahead of third placed Horoya and four behind group winners raja Club Athletic who picked a point in their 1-1 away draw against Uganda’s Vipers in Kampala.

Meanwhile, Sudan’s Al Hilal missed a golden chance to progress to the quarter finals with one match to spare after missing a last minute penalty.
