Al Ahly 2 UP against Wydad Before the 2nd leg. in Egypt

Mohamed Magdy Afsha scored the goal by grabbing the ball from the middle of the field and penetrating with a distinguished career, scoring the goal in the fourth minute of the match and Al-Ahly advanced

Wydad, who were hapless throughout at their own Mohammed V Stadium in Casablanca, appeared to be dearly affected by the absence of several key players, especially in defence, where natural midfielder Yahya Jabrane was repeatedly exposed.

Jabrane, drafted as a central defender due to shortage of options at the back, was robbed by Afsha for Ahly’s opener before blocking a shot from Nigerian forward Junior Ajayi with his arm shortly after the hour mark, with Maaloul tucking away the resulting penalty.

Wydad, who beat Ahly in a two-legged final in 2017, have tasted their first home defeat in the competition since losing to the Cairo giants in 2016.

The Red Devils will be firm favourites to advance to the final when they host Wydad next week at Cairo Stadium.

Full time: Wydad 0-2 Ahly
Scorers: Magdi Afsha 4, Ali Maaloul 62 pen
