Libya's representatives in the African Confederation Cup, Al-Nasr and Al-Akhdar, took the field on Saturday as part of their battle for the African Confederation Cup title.
In the first leg of the CAF 32 round, Al-Naser faced the Rwandan Kigali at the Huayi Stadium in the Rwandan capital, while Al-Akhdar hosted Azzam of Tanzania.
The Rwandans got into the mood from the start relying on striking counterattacks, yet Al-Nasser's defence was alert enough, and the hosts had to be content with a 0-0 draw that keeps the Libyans in with a strong chance of qualifying for the next stage when they play the home game at the Benina Martyrs Stadium on October 16.
Meanwhile, Al-Akhdar enjoyed their best period of the first half, when Sohaib Ben Sulaiman and Amer Al Tawergi fired their team to a 3-0 win over Azzam of Tanzania.
The hosts also shot two other goals, which the referee canceled, stating that it was offside.
After restart, both teams wasted several opportunities, one important one was a penalty kick Salem Al-Masallati missed for Al-Nasr before the whistle blew that would have increased Al-Akhdar's chances in the away match scheduled for October 16 in Dar Al-Salaam.
