Sherif Ekramy’s hand slip put Al Ahly in Danger | CAF CL Match Review

An error by Ahly’s keeper Sherif Ekramy allowed Esperance to claim a precious 2-2 away draw on Saturday in the first leg of the African Champions League quarter finals.

The 34-year-old international keeper rose to catch a long range free kick from Ghailane Chaalali, but the ball slipped between his hands into his own net, bringing the score to a 2-1 lead for Esperance in the 48th minute after first half goals from Abdallah El-Said in the 10th minute and Yassine Khenessi in the 20th minute.

Moroccan striker Walid Azaro earned the draw for the eight-time African Champions in the 67th minute, giving little hope for the Reds ahead of next weeks return leg in Rades.

The Reds will now head to Rades hoping for a victory on Saturday to pursue their quest for a first title since 2013.
