Madagascar and Mozambique played to a 2-2 draw in the first leg of their 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifier in Antananarivo on Sunday afternoon.

The teams’ first clash in the Southern Zone’s second round sets up the tie perfectly for the return leg in Maputo next weekend.

The Mambas got off to a flying start and claimed the lead early on through Salomao Mandlane, but the half ended 1-1 when Madagascar’s Njiva Rakotoarimalala scored an equaliser just before the break.

And Barea claimed the lead for the first time early in the second stanza when Rakotoarimalala netted a second in the 51st minute.

However, parity was soon restored when Mozambique’s Manuel Fernandes made it 2-2, giving the visitors a valuable second away goal ahead of next weekend’s second leg.

The aggregate winner of the tie will face either Mauritius or Angola in the final phase of qualification.
