CAFCL: Rivers United held to a 1-1 draw at home by Al Hilal

Rivers United will rue their lethargicness after their 1-1 draw against African giants and Sudanese side, Al Hilal on Sunday.

The Pride of Rivers having conceded in the first half scored in the second period to salvage a draw in their CAF Champions League first round, first leg tie at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium, Port Harcourt.

The highly entertaining match witnessed plenty of actions but unfortunately ended in a stalemate. The wasteful Rivers United had plenty of possession but were undone by the lack of clinical touch in the final third.

Yasil Mohamed open scoring for the visitors Al Hilal in the thirty-seventh minute but the hosts fought back after the break and got their equalizer in the sixty-eight minute when Mohamed Saeed put the ball into his own net.

The Stanley Eguma tutored side will now travel to Susan next Sunday for the reverse fixture with the hope of edging their counterparts at the New Suez Stadium, Suez.
