Ronald Chitiyo’s brace was enough for Caps United to beat USM Alger of Algeria 2-1 in the CAF Champions League match at the National Sports Stadium this afternoon.
Chitiyo gave Caps the lead in the 16th minute but USM Alger equalised in the 66th minute.
Chitiyo then produced another moment of magic, firing from close range in the 80th minute to give Caps all the three points.
Caps badly needed the points after a 2-nil loss to Egyptian side, Zamalek in their first group match.
The Zimbabwean champions are now level on points with USM Alger, who won their first game 3-nil against Al Ahli Tripoli of Libya.
They trail Zamalek, who have 4 points from two games, while Tripoli are bottom of the group with a point after a nil-all draw with the Egyptian side last night.
Top two teams from each will progress to the quarter-finals of Africa’s biggest club competition.
