Libya’s Al Ittihad and JS Saoura of Algeria played out to a 1-1 draw in their third Group B match of the TotalEnergies CAF Confederation Cup.

The result in Benghazi sees both sides move to four points, though Saoura has played three matches, drawing one, losing one and winning one while Ittihad were playing their second group stage match. They started off their campaign last weekend with a 3-2 home win against Orlando Pirates.

The Algerian side were faster off the blocks and Lahmeri twice came close in the 17th and 21st minutes, but he could not find the target.

For those close chances, they were punished in the 22nd minute when Ittihad opened the scoring through Mohamed Zubya.

But Saoura wouldn’t wait for long before they drew back level, Mohamed Ouis finding the back of the net on the half hour mark off a Lahmeri assist.

In the second half, the close contest continued and still, it was Saoura who had more close opportunities to score. However, Belaid Hamidi and Adel Bouchiba couldn’t find the target.
