CAF Champions League Final - First Leg 
Result: Al Ahly 3-1 ES Tunis Date: 02 November 2018 Venue: Borg El Arab Stadium Al Ahly took an advantage in the CAF Champions League final after they defeated Esperance 3-1 in the first leg on Friday evening.The Tunisians made a fast start, creating movements at random from all angles of the pitch despite having the opening stages marred by stoppages aplenty.
Ahly were forced to make an early change two minutes to sbo222 the midway stage when Mohamed Hany replaced Ahmed Fathy through injury.The Egyptians were handed a penalty after Moez Ben Cherifia was adjudged to have fouled inside the box. Walid Soliman lashed home a quality strike from 12-yards to hand Ahly the lead on 34 minutes.Esperance almost responded with a shot from outside the box that hit the top of the crossbar as Ahly lived to see another day in Alexandria.In search of a way back, Esperance started the second half quick off the mark with the stoppages of play continuing amidst the hostile atmosphere.However, the hosts grabbed a second through Amour El Saouai after finishing off a cross from Soliman from the right hand side despite the countless pressure on 68 minutes.Esperance had it all to do and Ahmed Jamaal produced a one-handed save over the top from Mohamed El Shanaawy minutes later.The latter turned from hero to villain after conceding a penalty on 62 minutes. The man who earned Mahmoud Belailli reduced the deficit to sbo222 just one score with a comfortable finish.The Red Devils soon increased the tempo of the game yet again and it wasn’t long before their two-goal advantage was restored.The third goal arrived in the 77th minute after another penalty was awarded following a coming-together inside the box. Soliman once again did the honours and made no mistake, sending Charifa the wrong way.Soliman almost made it four to sbo222 complete his hat-trick but cracked the top of the crossbar from a free-kick on the edge of the area.In the end, the encounter ended 3-1 in favour of the hosts, but Esperance will take confidence in the fact that they secured an away goal.
