Forward Ocansey Mandela was on target when Horoya AC were held at home to a 1-1 draw on Friday in Conakry.
The Guinean giants opened the 2018/2019 CAF Champions League group stage campaign hosting champions Esperance de Tunis at the Stade du 28 Septembre in Conakry.
Mandela starting as captain for his side, led them by example as he scored the opener in the 63rd minute when he headed home a cross from Brefo Mensah.
Horoya AC failed to clinch all three points as their lead was cancelled very late in the game.
Godfred Asante picked a booking but lasted the entire duration of the game likewise Ocansey.
However, Brefo Mensah was substituted in the 77th minute while Patrick Razak warmed the bench.
