Ngezi Platinum played a 1-1 draw away to Mauritian side Pamplemousses in the CAF Confederation Cup this afternoon.

Ngezi Platinum took the lead in the ninth minute with Liberty Chakoroma converting from the penalty spot.

Ngezi had the upper hand dominating the possession in the first 20 minutes however a lapse in concentration saw Pamplemousses equalising on the 35 minute mark when Nelson Chadya was caught of his line in an attempt to clear the ball and Pamplemousses striker Razah reacted quickly score in an open net.

Just before the halftime break Kevin Bulaji should have made it 2-1 when he was through on goal only to put his shot wide with only the keeper to beat.

The second half saw chances chances for both teams as action sung from one end to another but the scorline was to remain 1-1.

Ndiraya’s men will now be fancying their chances after scoring what could be a key away goal ahead of the second leg next weekend at Baobab Stadium in Ngezi.

Chadya,Murwira,Machona,Mukanga,Jaure,Bulaji, Ketala,Mukandi,Moyo,Mchisa,Chakoroma
