CAF Confederation Cup: Rangers draw with Sfaxien in Tunisia

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that in the match played at the Stade Taïeb Mhir in Sfax the hosts, parading Nigeria’s Kingsley Sokari, broke the deadlock after sustained pressure.

Alaa Marzouki scored with a superb header in the 71st minute to underline their dominance.

But the home crowd were soon silenced when Pape Sane smashed home a rebound off Bobby Clement’s goalbound header to draw level for Rangers barely two minutes later.

In stoppage time, the crossbar came to the rescue of Rangers after a fumble by the otherwise impressive Ghanaian goalkeeper Nana Bonsu.

As much as the Tunisian side tried, they could not get the winner, even with six minutes added after regulation time.

Rangers, with four points and a +2 goals difference, still lead Group B.

They are followed by CS Sfaxien who have the same number of points, but are with a +1 goal advantage.

Etoile du Sahel, who were held to a goalless draw by Salitas FC in Burkina Faso, are third on a point.

The Burkinabes are also on a point, albeit on an inferior goals difference, and they are occupying the bottom of the log.

NAN reports that Rangers are due to return to Tunisia to face Etoile du Sahel on Feb. 24.(NAN)
