For his first outing in the pool phase, TP Mazembe of Kinshasa and his supporters came out of the Muntubile Santos stadium of Delvaux with a victory in pocket. The team dear to President Freddy has tutored ” Solid Base ” on the mark of 5 goals to 4. It was Sunday, 11 June last, at 15:30. It is a match counting for the first day of the pool G. It should be recalled here that this match was played in the so-called national cohesion tournament organized by Papy Tamba, a communicator of the MP and the humble servant of the young people of Ngaliema. According to the organizers, this tournament is in line with the thought shared by the President of the Republic, Joseph Kabila, to see the Congolese youth take conscious of its responsibilities. Hats off to Papy Tamba, on whom the youth of Ngaliema has set his sights.
It is a heroic confrontation between the solid base and Tout Puissant Mazembe at the Muntubile stadium in Delvaux, in the commune of Ngaliema. The fans of two teams attended a meeting rich in goals and emotions. Despite the first day of pool G, Almighty Mazembe showed his power to snatch the three precious points of this match. In just five minutes, the Mazembiens as they are called, scored two goals. The first goal was the work of bib 8. The second was signed by his central defender. With two goals, TP Mazembe completely marched on his opponent, which no one thought to see in this difficult situation. TP Mazembe’s midfielder scored on the 16th minute as the result of a big mistake from the opposing defense. With three goals at zero, Solid Base takes things seriously. We lived the scenario of a Vita-Imana derby. We had to wait a few minutes afterwards to see the visible solid base response. The surface fox of this club throws a shot of nearly 25 meters which finishes its race to the net. This goal gives hope to the latter. The game seems balanced this time. It’s a shame that TP Mazembe’s midfielder is going to use the solid base guardian in an action in which he manhandled the entire defense until he was alone against the goalkeeper. That is the fourth goal. Then the fifth arrived before the break. Upon returning from the locker room, Solid Base changed tactics. This time, the game is played in the wings. That’s how the bib 9 signs the second goal by a good job of the right winger. Two minutes later, Base solid enjoys a penalty kick. The bib 7 takes charge and marks. At the bleachers, a silence of the dead seized the supporters of Mazembe. That’s not all. Hold ! Nine minutes before the end of the match, the home striker scored a double. Solid base completely resumes its minds. Too late because the remaining minutes gave no chance to this club to equalize. A 5-4, TP Mazembe comes out with three points in his pocket before continuing the adventure. In the same pool, Bana Ngaliema enjoys three points without playing. Because the Veterans’ Club did not show up at the stadium, let alone the field. That was the end of Pool G. Next weekend, four games will be played in Saturday and Sunday in pools A and E. It will also be the start of the second day in Pool A.
