Leo Adraa’s ten man Atlabara from South Sudan almost stunned Tanzania’s Azam but could only settle for a 2-2 draw at the end in an entertaining game played at Kigali regional stadium, Nyamirambo.
Azam took the lead through Michael Bolou’s 43rd minute free kick following a foul on his twin brother Kipre Herman Tche Tche before Atlabara replied with two quick fire second goals through captain Thomas Batista and Sebit Ajak.
The Tanzania Vodacom Premier League champions needed a late equalizer through Burundi import Didier Kavumbagu who had replaced Haitian striker Lionel Saint Preux.
