Algerian side Entente Setif secured a precious draw away at a packed Tata Raphael Stadium in Kinshasa where the home side had to come from behind two times to keep alive their interest in the 50th edition of the Orange Champions League.

The Golden Jubilee first leg of Africa's premier club  championship was in the setting of the environs that hosted what became known as the "Rumble in the Jungle" when Muhammad Ali beat George Foreman to reclaim the world boxing heavyweight title 40 years ago. This time, the home fans were not cheering from the start as the Algerians raced into an early lead from a Ndombe Mubele own goal.

Vita leveled matters from the penalty spot on the stroke of half-time; Lema Mabidi making no mistake to slot past goalie Sofiane Khedairia to leave the score tied 1-1 at the break.

Akram Djahnit restored Setif's lead on the hour but there was still time for another cracking goal as Mabidi thundered in Vita's second to complete his brace and give the Black Dolphins hope for the return leg in Blida next weekend.

A second instalment of what is expected to be as thrilling awaits on Saturday 1st November from where new African champion will carry the hopes of the continent at the FIFA Club World Cup in Morocco in December.
