CAF Confederations Cup
El Nasr 2-2 Proline FC
Borg El Arab Stadium, Alexandria
Proline FC twice came from behind to draw 2-2 with El Nasr in their CAF Confederations Cup playoff round first leg in Alexandria on Sunday afternoon.
It is a result that will surely build the Lugogo based side’s confidence as they host the second leg at home in a week’s time.
Bright Anukani scored the second equalizer for Matia Lule’s side 12 minutes from time.
The Libyans had earlier opened the scoring on 13th minute through forward Moataz Al Mahdi who picked the ball beautifully from 10 yards out before slamming it into the bottom right corner.
El Nasr could have doubled their tally but kept on missing chances.
They were made to pay at the stroke of halftime when Mustafa Mujuzi struck a belter of a freekick from the edge of the area.
Al Nasr, just like they did in the opening half, started brighter in the second. They went 2-1 up on 68 minutes when Khalid Madji slotted home from the penalty spot after Richard Ajuna handled the ball inside the box.
Against the run of play, Anukani drew Proline level on 88 minutes.
The result means that a scoreless or 1-1 draw in Kampala will be enough to book the side a historic place in the Confederations Cup group stages while Al Nasr must now win or pick a draw of more than three goals in the second leg.
Meanwhile, Uganda’s other representative in the competition-KCCA FC were held to a goalless draw at home to Algerian side Paradou on the same day.
