Al Ahly crushes Etoile du Sahel 6-2, moves to African Champions League final
Egyptians Al Ahly will play Moroccans Wydad Casablanca in next month’s African Champions League final after thrashing Etoile du Sahel 6-2 to win through 7-4 on aggregate.
In an extraordinary semi-final in Alexandria, Al Ahly constantly ripped the Tunisians’ defence apart as they booked their place in the final for a record eleventh time.
After Ali Maaloul opened the scoring for the hosts after just two minutes, Walid Azarou took the game away from Etoile with three unanswered goals.
An own goal and a fine strike from Rami Rabiaa took Al Ahly to their first final since 2013, with Etoile replying through Rami El Bedwi and Ihab Msakni late on.
