Home wins dominated Wednesday’s 2020-21 Caf Confederation Cup action.


Of the eight matches scattered across the African continent, seven ended in home wins while Orlando Pirates held ES Setif to 0-0 draw in neutral Accra, Ghana.


The Buccaneers were forced into an early change as Richard Ofori was stretchered off the field with a reported groin injury and he will now be a doubt for Ghana’s match against South Africa later this month.


In the end, a match of little noteworthy chances, ended in a goalless stalemate to leave both teams on a point in Group A after one round of fixtures, two behind Enyimba who beat Al Ahly Benghazi in Aba.


Defending champions RS Berkane got their campaign up and running with a 2-0 win over NAPSA Stars in Morocco while JS Kabylie scored an 88th minute winner to down 10-man Cotonsport 1-0.


Record three-time winners CS Sfaxien edged past Salitas 1-0 in Sfax courtesy of a second-half Aymen Harzi penalty. Their Group C rivals and two-time champions Etoile du Sahel defeated Jaraaf 2-0 to leave the two Tunisian clubs level on three points in Group C.


In Group D, Moroccon giants Raja Casablanca edged past Tanzania’s Namungo – who also had a man sent off – 1-0 while last season’s runners-up Pyramids FC thumped Nkana 3-0 in the biggest win of the day.
