AC Leopards and CS Sfaxien end continental campaign with goalless draw


Already-eliminated and played out a goalless draw in Dolise to bring their 2015 Confederation Cup campaign to a close.

There was little to play for as former champions’ AC Leopards and CS Sfaxien faced off in their final fixture of group B. Both teams had already been eliminated heading into this weekend. The performance matched the importance of the game as the two spurred to a pedestrian 0-0 draw.

With little at stake both sides seemed satisfied to play with little pressure. The respective defensive performances were decent but only because there was little urgency to attack. It was the second time they were playing out a draw after their earlier encounter in Sfax ended 1-1.

AC Leopards thus maintained their third place finish on five points while three-times winner CS Sfaxien end a horrendous outing with just two points. Zamalek and Orlando Pirates qualified from this group in first and second place, respectively.

I have dedicated part of my time in this bad world to following African football. From CECAFA to WAFU, COSAFA to UNAF & even the forgotten UNIFFAC.
