Etoile Sahel hold advantage after first leg of final

RABAT, Nov 19 (Reuters) - Tunisia's Etoile Sahel take a big advantage into the second leg of the African Confederation Cup final after holding champions Royal Armed Forces of Morocco to a 1-1 draw in Rabat.

Etoile, who were runners-up in the African Champions League final last year, led at halftime through Cape Verdian import Gilson, who latched on to a lob from Yacine Chikhaoui in the 33rd minute at the Moulay Abdellah stadium.

But the Tunisians lost the advantage after Mejdi Ben Mohamed was sent off in the 69th minute following a second caution. He will be suspended for the second leg.

Mohamed Ali Nafkha conceded an own goal three minutes later.

Etoile coach Faouzi Benzerti said his side had achieved their objective of scoring a potentially vital away goal.

'We have put ourselves into a good situation but don't let anyone claim we have won the cup just yet,' he told reporters.

The Tunisians host the second leg in Souse on Dec. 2.
