Concise News reports that Iheb Msakni and Saddam Ben Aziza gave the North Africans their first win in the group phase of the 2019 CAF Confederation Cup and ruined Enugu Rangers’ eight-game unbeaten run with a 2-1 triumph on Sunday.

The hosts levelled matters through Msakni in the 35 minutes and Gbenga Ogunbote’s men were caught on the break in the second half as Ben Aziza sealed victory, inflicting a first defeat on Rangers for the first time in the competition this term.

With this result, the Flying Antelopes drop to third in Group B. However, they would be hoping to regroup when they host Etoile du Sahel in the reverse fixture on Sunday, March 3.
