CAF Champions League: Al Ahly Continue Continental Dominance

By Chimezie Nebolisa

Egypt’s Al Ahly were crowned African champions for the fourth time in the last five years after scoring early to beat Esperance of Tunisia 1-0 in Saturday’s second leg of the Champions League final.

Home victory in front of a capacity 60 000 in Cairo secured a 1-0 aggregate triumph, after last Saturday’s goalless first leg in Tunisia, and a record-extending 12th victory for Al Ahly in the continent’s top club competition.
