Tunisian club CS Sfaxien's fairytale ride in the 10th MTN CAF Champions League continued to gather speed as the gods of the game threw them a lifeline when all seemed lost last weekend.

Not many teams come back from Cairo in one piece, especially after meeting Al Ahly in the cauldron that is the local national stadium.

But that is what Sfaxien achieved when they held the mighty Egyptians to a 1-all draw with a last minute equaliser in the first leg of the final, with the second leg taking place at home.

The match's highlights and those from the CAF Confederations Cup and leagues from around the continent will be shown on the African Soccer Television show on SABC Sport's Laduma programme on Sunday at 3pm.

The third CAF Confederation Cup 2006 Group A matches also produced great action with InterClube just edging Khouribga 1-0, while FAR Rabat and Petro Atletico produced a thriller before the latter were shown the door via a 2-1 defeat.

In a Group B match FC Lupopo could only manage a 2-2 draw with visiting Esperance. They now have their work cut out in the second leg because of the away goal rule. They have a mountain to climb.

History was made in the Nigeria Coca-Cola FA Cup third and fourth place playoff when referee CR Ikeme took charge and Niger Tornadoes took off with one million naira (about R59000) after accounting for Kaduna United 2-1, who banked 600000 naira (about R36000) for fourth place.

The final between Insurance and Dolphins was a tense affair which failed to produce a winner after extra-time, with the teams tied at 2-all. Penalties finally saw the Dolphins swim away with three million naira (about R177000).
