African Champions League: Kaizer Chiefs Held As Al Ahly Win

South Africa giants Kaizer Chiefs were held to a goalless draw by Angola’s CD Primeiro de Agosto in the African Champions League second round first-leg while Egypt’s Al Ahly began their title campaign with a win over  Niger’s Sonidep yesterday.

Chiefs dominated the clash against the Luanda giants at the FNB Stadium but were unable to utilize the home advantage.

Khama Billiat had found the back of the net for Amakhosi midway through the first stanza with a close-range finish but the goal was disallowed for offside.

Agosto goalkeeper Tony Da Costa had to come to his side rescue in the dying minutes of the second stanza, tipping Lebogang Mayama’s shot at goal out for a corner.

In Niamey, holders Al Ahly put one foot in the group stages of the prestigious competition after beating hosts Sonidep 1-0 in a match played at General Seyni Kountche Stadium.

Malian midfielder Aliou Dieng scored the all-important goal in the 33 rd minutes after making the most of a poor defensive clearance as Ahly got the job done despite missing several regulars.

It was same the same score line Bamako as Stade Malien secured a 1-0 home win over Moroccan giants Wydad Casablanca.

The return leg of the matches are scheduled to take place in a fortnight where the aggregate winners will qualify for the group stages while the losers will drop to the CAF Confederation Cup group stages play-off round.
