Ashantigold secured an impressive draw against Akonangui on Saturday, despite going through tough times upon their arrival in Equatorial Guinea.
The Miners took the lead 55 minutes into the second half through a classic finish from star defender Richard Osei Agyemang.
Akonangui FC pulled parity later in the game through a wonderful finish by attacker Diosando Mbele.
The Ghana Premier League side managed to hold on and walked away with 1-1 draw which could prove very useful in the second leg at the Obuasi LenClay Sports Stadium.
Coach Da Rocha and his charges would be pleased with the score line due to the hostile circumstances they went through in the East African country.
The Miners will begin their journey home from Ebebiyin by tomorrow and are expected to be in Ghana by Wednesday.
