Sierra Leone champions Bo Rangers opened their CAF Champions campaign with a 1-1 draw against Liberian side LISCR in their first leg CAF Champions League preliminary in Bo.

Rangers scored an early goal through Mohamed Kabba in the 3rd minute, but they were unable to extend their lead. As a result, the visitors drew parity in the 34th minute through Christopher Jackson at the Southern Arena on Saturday.

The reverse fixture will be played at the SKD in Liberia on Sunday, August 27, as both teams will be hoping to make the next stage of the competition.

The last time Rangers played continental football, they were eliminated by Algerian side CR Belouizdad 3-0 on aggregate following a goalless first leg last September.

Having won the Sierra Leone Premier League unbeaten after a run of 34 games, they will look to continue in that form later this afternoon against their Liberian counterpart.

Several sides have gained advantages to take into their second-leg clashes, while some face uphill tasks to keep their Champions League hopes alive.
