Sewe strike late to hold FUS Rabat



Sewe Sport will have a slight edge in the second leg after scoring late to hold FUS Rabat to a 1-1 draw in their first leg on Sunday night.

The home side broke the deadlock in the 70th minute through Brahim El Bahri, reviving their hopes of taking a slender advantage to the second leg which will take place in the Ivory Coast.

However, Kevin Zougoula netted the equaliser for the visitors just ten minutes later to silence the home crowd at the Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium.

The Moroccans were given a chance to restore their lead three minutes later when they were awarded a penalty, but Sylvain Gbohouo produced a good save to deny Mourad Batna.

Sewe will now back themselves to seal the result in their backyard where they have already defeated Horoya 3-0 and Al Hilal 4-1 in the previous rounds.

The second leg will take place at the Stade Robert Champroux in Abidjan on the first weekend of May.
