Things remain tight in Group C as Smouha SC and Al-Hilal Al-Ubayyid played to a 1-1 stalemate at the Borg El Arab Stadium in Alexandria on Saturday evening.

The result bodes well for the Sudanese visitors as the two teams remain deadlocked in Group C, opening the door for either ZESCO United or Recreativo do Libolo to pull clear later today.

Ahmed Hassan Mekki put the hosts 1-0 up at the break with the attacker converting from 12 yards following a foul inside the penalty area.

Al-Ubayyid, though, never gave up hope and secured a point through rather fortunate circumstances.

Smouha pressed forward in search of all three points, but it wouldn't be as the game ended all square.
