Venue: Stade olympique de Rades, Tunisia
Referee: Tessema Bamlak Weyesa (Ethiopia)
First leg result: Ahly 3-1 Esperance

Cairo giants Al Ahly Al take on Esperance of Tunisia in the Caf Champions League final second leg Friday against a backdrop of a tarnished African club football image.

Boasting a proud record in Rades, the venue of their Champions League triumphs in 2006 and 2012, Ahly are confident they can protect a 3-1 first-leg lead and clinch a record-extending ninth triumph.

But they are aware they must tighten up at the back to avoid the kind of nerve-jangling moments they had to go through in the semi final second-leg against ES Setif in Algeria, where they conceded twice to lose 2-1 but still qualified with a 3-2 aggregate win.

Ahly will also have to make the most of their continental experience to deal with the expected vibrant atmosphere in Rades.

The Tunisians, winners of two Champions League titles, have not beaten Ahly since 2011. Ahly’s record of eight wins, six draws and three loses against Esperance makes them favorites to enjoy another continental triumph — Lets bring the Cup back to Egypt.
