FAZ reports that the visitors opened the scoring in the 4th minute via Youssef Mouihidi who converted from the penalty spot following Christopher Munthali’s ill timed challenge on Lasaad Jaziri inside the box.

Festus Mbewe gave Nkana the lead for the first time in the 26th minute when he combined with Claude Bwalya, his effort coming off the post before hitting the back of the net.

On the half hour mark Sofiane Moussa restored parity with a sublime effort from close range after getting the better of Amos Simwanza who otherwise had a good day at the office.
