There was nothing for Rwanda to show of their dominance as Libyans held their CHAN-bound rivals battled to a barren draw in CECAFA Group A tie  played at Machakos County stadium this Thursday 7 December.

The clash pitting the nations set for CHAN 2018 football at top of the year proved a listless encounter as far as converting chances went.

The Rwandese, on the back of two  consecutive losses, started as the dominant force by taking the game to Libyans doors.

Youngster Djabel Manishimwe offer was first to register an attempt from a shot that whistled just wide of Libya's keeper Ali Shniena's cross bar.

Mico chance

Antoine Hey's charges wait for a break through should have ended midway in the half after Justin Micho nicked possession of an an unsuspecting Libyan defender.

The Police marksman did well but his first shot came off the bar before he ballooned the follow up on a second bite at the cherry.

Subsequent action saw with Shniena's aerial presence proving key in keeping Amavubi at bay.

 Offensive Rwandese

Rwandese maintained the attacking tempo in the final half as Djebil had another glorious chance to send them infront.

Hey first chance came in with Ali Niyonzima replacing Jean Mukunzi. 

Mico was back on the offense but his sliced header veered off the bar before the strokers with a raised flag  almost immediately from another right flank move. 

No late drama

There was no as end as it expected with Libyans marking their third clean sheet in as many games.

Rwanda next Tanzania on Saturday as Libyans welcome Zanzibar in their fina group clash.
