Ahly was in Mali to honour Stade Malien’s invitation while the Nigerian club, Sunshine Stars had a rendez-vous with Djoliba in the CAF Champions League tournament.

Host, Stade Malien edged visiting Ahly one goal to nothing while Sunshine and Stars drew 1-1.

Six players, two officials and two journalists all from the Nigerian camp planned to leave on Tuesday after a first group of players and officials had already left. They are trapped in the gunfire between government forces and the Malian rebels.

"The team may not leave for Nigeria due to sporadic shootings around the Aeroport International Airport, Bamako".
