USM Alger and Ferroviário Beira drew 0-0 in the 2017 CAF Champions League quarter-final second-leg match at the Stade du 5 Juillet on Saturday night.

The win sees the Algerian club qualify for the semi-finals after winning the tie on the away goals rule following a 1-1 draw on aggregate.

Mozambican side Beira bow out of the tournament.

The first-leg match had ended in a 1-1 draw in Mozambique last weekend and Alger were targeting a home victory.

Alger's dangerman Oussama Darfalou was tightly marked by the visitors, who were also looking to take the lead.

However, the score was 0-0 at half-time with coach Paul Put's Alger charges having failed to score.

Fabrice Kanda, who had netted for Beira in the first-leg match, was closely watched by Rafik-Chafai, the Alger defender.

Beira were unable to score in the second-half and the match ended in a 0-0 stalemate.
