Egypt’s Ahly beat Algeria’s ES Setif 2-0 | CAF Champions League semi-final

Egyptian giants Ahly will be grateful that they were not made to pay for a string of misses as they secured a 2-0 home win over Algeria’s ES Setif to secure a comfortable first-leg advantage in the African Champions League semi-final on Tuesday.

Two first-half goals, a header from the impressive Walid Soliman and a scrappy effort from Islam Mohareb, put Ahly in pole position to reach the Champions League final for the second year running.

However, they could have easily secured a win by a bigger margin had it not been for some astonishing misses in the latter stages.

Setif will have slim hopes to cause an upset and overturn the deficit when they host record eight-time winners Ahly in the second leg on 23 October, having been unable to prove a match to the mighty Cairo side in a largely one-sided affair.
