Al Hilal Omdurman claimed a credible 1-1 draw away to Étoile du Sahel in a 2017 CAF Champions League clash at the Stade Olympique de Sousse on Saturday evening.

Despite the stalemate, the Tunisian giants remain three points clear atop of Group A after three rounds of fixtures, despite Ferroviário Beira's home win in Maputo.

Zied Boughattas finally found the opener in the 57th minute as the defender hammered home on the volley to send the home crowd into ecstasy.

The Sudanese, though, proved their credentials as they stretched their unbeaten run in all competitions to 24 matches with a 80th minute equaliser.

Mohamed Musa with the coolest of finishes, chipping the ball over the Etoile shot-stopper before rolling the ball into the back of the net to secure a point in Sousse.

The result moves Al-Hilal up to three points on the standings while Etoile occupy top spot with seven points.
