Egyptian football club Ahly reached the African Champions’ League group stage after a home win over Tunisia’s Bizertin 2-1 on Sunday, reported Ahram Online.
Ahly’s midfielder Mohamed Barakat and the club’s striker Emad Meteb scored two goals, putting them in the lead. Tunisia’s Nour Hadhria halved the deficit with a penalty shot for Bizertin.
Bizertin finished with ten men after its player Mohamed Ali M'hadhbi was sent off towards the end of the match, the website reported.
Sunday’s match was played at Cairo’s Air Defense Stadium without any fans after the Egyptian Football Association “imposed an indefinite crowd ban in the wake of recent fan troubles,” the website said.
The first leg in Bizerte ended in a goalless draw. But winning on Sunday will take Ahly and its Egyptian rival Zamalek to the CAF’s quarter finals.
