Sudanese side, Al Hilal played a near-victory performance to play out a goaless draw with CAF Champions League defending champions, Al Ahly on Friday at Ombudsman.
It was a game where the home team took the champions to the cleaners creating chances upon chances, but could not just convert especially in the first phase of the encounter.
The Egyptian warlords did show their mettle in the second verse of the tie, but rather than being overwhelmed, Al Hilal remained resolute showing that they can hold their own in a group A that has two former champions.
It will be recalled that the Sudanese side had narrowly lost in a controversial fashion to the Mamelodi Sundowns in their first group game by a goal to nil. As a result, they are fourth with a point while Al Ahly who has played a match has a point and sit second.
Al Ahly play South African powerhouse, Sundowns as Al Hilal knock horns against Al Merreikh next Saturday.
