AfricanFootball wraps up Sunday’s CAF Confederation Cup action, which saw 10 playoff round, first leg matches played across the continent.

The headline result was defending champions TP Mazembe’s 2-0 home win over Algerian contenders JS Kabylie in Lubumbashi, with Nathan Sinkala and Salif Coulibaly scoring the goals for the Ravens.

South African sides Platinum Stars and SuperSport United had mixed results in their trips to West Africa, with the former losing 2-0 to Ivory Coast’s AS Tanda, while the latter picked up a creditable 1-1 draw in Liberia against Barrack Young Controllers.

It was a good day for Tunisian travellers Club African and CS Sfaxien, who both won 2-1 away to AS Port Louis and Rail Club Kadiogo respectively.

The high-profile clash between Nigeria’s Enugu Rangers and Zambian visitors Zesco United ended in a 2-2 draw, with the Southern Africans fighting back from two goals down thanks to second-half strikes from David Owino and Patrick Kongolo.

Sunday’s results were wrapped up by a 2-1 home win for FUS Rabat over fellow Moroccans Maghreb Fez.

The second leg matches will be played next weekend, while the Rivers United v Rayon Sports tie will be played a week out of sequence, with the first leg on April 15 followed by the return game on April 22.
