CAF Confederation Cup: Enugu Rangers Hold CS Sfaxien In Tunisia
Nigeria’s Enugu Rangers are pulling their weight in the CAF Confederations Cup.
They extended their unbeaten run on Wednesday night after playing a 1-1 draw against Tunisia’s CS Sfaxien in their Group B match at the Stade Taïeb Mhiri.
Both teams fired blank in the first half.
The home side had the majority of the possession in the opening half and had numerous shots on goal, but their direction was lacking with four shots on goal out of 10 attempts.
Rangers spent most of the half defending and were the more relieved of the two sides when the first stanza ended 0-0.
CS Sfaxien continued to pile on the pressure in the second half and finally found their reward in the 71st minute when Alaeddine Marzouki found the back of the net with a deadly finish, 1-0.
The home side’s joy, though, was short-lived when Pape Ousmane Sane scored the equaliser for Rangers two minutes later, 1-1.
The result leaves both sides unbeaten in the Confederations Cup on four points apiece at the top of Group B.
CS Sfaxien are next in action in the Confederations Cup at home against Salitas on February 24, while Rangers are away to Etoile du Sahel on the same day.
