Ivorian side ASEC Mimosas played to a barren draw against Tunisia’s US Monastir in the first leg of their TotalEnergies CAF Confederation Cup at the Stade Olympique de Radèson Sunday, CAF reports.
The result means they will be hoping to take advantage at home when the sides clash in the return fixture next weekend.
Visitors Asec had the best opportunities on the balance of chances in the first half, but they were denied by a combination of good goalkeeping from Sadok Yedes and a lack of composure in the final third.
Agbalegah Zuma had a brilliant diving header saved by the keeper before Esis Flugence had another effort saved at the near post by the keeper.
Pacome Zouzoua then lined up on the list of chances with a brilliant shot from a distance which keeper Yedes did brilliantly to pluck away.
Heykeul Chikhaoui had the best chance for the home side when he lined up a shot from inside the box, but it was blocked Ahmed Jafeli should have done better with a second-half chance, but he took too many touches inside the box, allowing the defenders to race back and block his final effort.
It is everyone’s game heading into next weekend’s return tie, with the game evenly poised at 0-0.
Below are the fully listed first-leg results of the CAF Confederation quarter-finals
