AS Vita put up an emphatic performance at home to shred Simba SC of Tanzania 5-0 in the second group D match of the CAF Champions league at the stade Des Martyrs.

The game saw Uganda duo of Emmanuel Okwi and Murushid Juuko feature for the Tanzanian reigning champions whose evening ended in a disappointment.

Jean Marc Mukusu opened the scoring rout in the 14th minute before Botuli Bompenga doubled the lead with a perfect header.

At the stroke of halftime, Luamba Ngoma calmly converted from the penalty spot to extend Florent Ikwange Ibenge’s side’s lead.

The hosts dominance continued in Kinshasa after the recess with Makwekwe Kuka scoring the fourth in the 71st minute.

Mukusu ended the scoring when he grabbed his second of the evening and fifth for the Congolese outfit.

AS Vita now move to second place in group D and a point behind record eight times winners Al Ahly of Egypt who are on four points after their 1-1 draw away to JS Saoura of Algeria on Friday.
