Ismaily 1 CS Constantine 1: Hamdi own goal denies Egyptians victory

CS Constantine snatched a 1-1 draw with Ismaily in Saturday's CAF Champions League clash after a 94th-minute own goal from Emad Hamdi.

The match in Egypt was the first for Ismaily since they were reinstated into the competition by CAF, having been initially disqualified following crowd trouble during the meeting with Club Africain last month.

Benson Shilongo opened the scoring in the 69th minute for the home side, who looked set to be heading for their first victory of this season's group stage.
