Alaya Brigui tapped home Wajdi Kechrida's cross just 40 seconds into the second half and Amr Marei capped the win 10 minutes later by volleying Alkhali Bangoura's cross beyond Jacob Banda.

Zesco pulled one back when Lazarous Kambole fired home from inside the six-yard box after Achraf Krir spilled a corner in second-half stoppage time, but they sit level with Primeiro de Agosto on one point, while Etoile move onto four.
