The Egyptian football powerhouse showed their class and quality in the second half with the Soweto giants playing with 10 players
Al Ahly successfully defended their Caf Champions League crown after securing a 3-0 victory over Kaizer Chiefs in the final which took place at Stade Mohamed V in Morocco on Saturday night.
Goals from Mohamed Sherif, Mohamed Magdi Afsha and Amr El Solia inspired the Egyptian giants to a well-deserved win over their South African opponents, who were making their maiden appearance in the final.
Coach Stuart Baxter took charge of Chiefs for the first time after receiving his South African work permit and the experienced British coach opted for Daniel Akpeyi between the sticks.
The win saw the Red Devils clinch a record-extending 10th Caf Champions League title and they qualify for this year’s Fifa Club World Cup.
They won the trophy in 1982, 1987, 2001, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2012, 2013, 2020 and 2021.
They were Runners-up in 1983, 2007, 2017 and 2018.
This is their 14th final.
