An electrifying Khartoum Stadium today hosted the first game of the CAF CL group stage 2014 which saw Al Hilal host TP Mazembe.

TP Mazembe responded quickly with a ferocious long range effort by Rainford Kalaba that went just wide of Jumaa Genaros post. Other than that, both keepers were comfortable throughout the rest of the first half.

In the second half, Al Hilal started well and managed to go 1-0 up through Salah Ibrahim “Al Jizoli” in the 50th minute of game after Bakri Madina latched onto a Omar Bakhiet through ball and crossed to find Al Jizoli unmarked as he headed home and Khartoum erupted. Al Hilal were in the ascendency.

TP Mazembe tried to come back into the game but Al Hilal defended resilliently and managed to see out the result.

The second game in this group sees travel to Kinshasa to face AS Vita Club on Sunday. Next Saturday Al Hilal will travel to Cairo to face in gameweek 2 in a hotly contested all-arab tie.
