A late equaliser from Badi Aouk earned Morocco's Wydad a well deserved 1-1 draw against USM of Algeria in Algiers on Saturday.

Abdelkrim Zouari put the hosts ahead as early as the fifth minute, firing a powerful shot home from outside the area.

However, Wydad pressed forward and upped their game after the interval, mounting an onslaught on USMA's goal until they got what they deserved in the 89th minute when Aouk intercepted a loose ball inside the box and sent a shot that was deflected by the keeper into his own net.

South Africa's Mamelodi Sundowns will host Angola's Petro Atletico in the other Group C match later in the day.

In Group A, Angolan side Primero Agosto were held to a 1-1 home draw by Zesco United of Zambia. Clement Mwape's 16th-minute goal for Zesco canceled out Cristovao Paciencia Mabululo's 10th-minute lead.

DR Congo giants TP Mazembe moved top of this group following a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Egypt's Zamalek earlier on Saturday.
