Defending CAF Confederations Cup champions TP Mazembe scored a late goal to hold Horoya to a 1-1 draw at the Stade du 28 Septembre in Conakry on Wednesday evening.

The Guinea outfit were on course to bag all three points, but as has been the case over the past decade, Mazembe found a different gear to grind out what could prove to be a vital point in their quest to retaining the title.

The Ravens, though, remain in second spot in Group D with SuperSport United having recorded a thumping win in Gabon earlier this week.

Jean Ebele put the Guinea side ahead after 33 minutes with the hosts holding onto their lead till 10 minutes from time.
