The match was halted in the 49th minute due to the torrential downpour in Bamako, with ES Tunis leading 0-1.

Play will resume on Monday at 6:30 p.m. Egypt time, and only the final 40 minutes will be played.

Promising Nigerian striker Edem Eduok scored the only goal in the 27th minute, giving the visitors a valuable advantage.

As per CAF regulations, the match will restart from the exact minute when play was stopped, with both teams fielding the same players from the day before.
