Orange CAF champions league: Ahli Benghazi defeats Ahli of Egypt
Ahli Benghazi defeated Ahli of Egypt with a narrow 1-0 win in the 1/8th round first leg clash in Tunis.
Despite playing away from their favourite ground in Benghazi, The Libyans delivered a good performance and managed to keep the eight time champions league winners in their half most of the time.
Ahmed Zuway and Sadomba were nightmares to Ahly’s defense with their dangerous penetrations and crosses until they forced Ahly’s back-rank to crack and that’s what happened in the 67th minute with Jomaa fatal mistake after he failed to clear the long ball, Zimbabwean striker Sadomba fired a shot that left Ekramy no chance to save.
This is the second consecutive loss for the Egyptian giants in the competition but still they have a chance to redeem their selves in the second leg match.
