Asec edge past Wydad Casablan 4/10/2007
Ghana''s Abdul Nafiu Iddrisu scored both goals as Asec of Ivory Coast beat Morocco''s Wydad Casablanca 2-0 in the Champions League on Sunday in Abidjan.

Iddrisu, the Olympic international, opened the scoring in 27th minute of the third round, first leg tie.

The talented striker sealed the win at the death after smashing home a free-kick.

Asec, gallant semi-finals losers to eventual champions Ahly of Egypt last year, entered the first leg of the final round qualifier under fire from coach Patrick Liewig.

The Frenchman, who watched from a stand at the Felix Houphouet-Boigny Stadium due to a four-match Caf ban, slammed the poor finishing and teamwork of Asec in recent matches.

DR Congo side TP Mazembe beat FAR Rabat of Morocco 1-0 in another tie of the third round.

The home side won the match thanks to a second half penalty converted by midfielder Alain Kaluyituka Tioko.

Mazembe were forced to play their home tie in the capital because of the ban imposed last year by Caf on their home ground in Lubumbashi.

Elsewhere on Sunday, Nigeria''s Nasarawa United thumped Al-Hilal of Sudan 3-0 in another third round tie in Lafia.

Shehu Dauda broke the deadlock for Nasarawa United just before the break.

Second half strikes by Seun Falodun and Savior Stephen sealed the win for the home side.

Etoile Congo continued Congo''s good football form as they beat Al Ittihad of Libya 3-1 in Brazzaville.

Cameroon''s Coton Sport Garoua defeated JS Kabylie of Algeria 1-0 while Tunisia''s Etoile Sahel travelled to Togo to hold Maranatha Fiokpo to a 0-0 draw.

Meanwhile, on Saturday South Africa''s Mamelodi Sundowns staged a remarkable comeback to snatch a 2-2 draw with holders Ahly in Pretoria.

Mohamed Barakat marked his return from a long-standing injury to score a vital away goal for the Egyptians.

Midfielder Barakat, voted the competition''s best player two years ago, opened the scoring for after 28 minutes.

His Angolan team mate Flavio extended the lead with a stunning long-range goal on ten minutes after the interval.

Sundowns clawed their way back with headers from full back Oscar Ntwagae and Venezuela international Jose Torrealba in the last quarter-hour.

Return matches are scheduled for the weekend of 20-22 April with the eight winners split into two groups and the losers entering the second-tier Confederation Cup.
