Defending champions Al Ahly and South African side Kaizer Chiefs could meet in this year’s CAF Champions League final.
Heading into the semi-finals second leg due on Saturday, June 26, the two sides hold a slight advantage over their opponents from the first leg.
Al Ahly will host Esperance at Cairo International Stadium in Egypt whereas Kaizer Chiefs will also be home at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg when they face off with Wydad on the same day.
Pitso Mosimane’s charges defeated Esperance 1-0 while the Amakhosi were also 1-0 winners against Moroccan giants Wydad Casablanca.
Both teams registered victories away from home which gives them more advantage ahead of Saturday’s return leg fixtures.
Mohamed Sherif’s second-half goal earned the Red Devils all the three points at Stade Olympique de Rades in Tunisia, while Stuart Baxter’s Boys won it against Wydad at the Stade Mohamed V in Morocco through Samir Nurkovic’s 34th-minute goal.
Should both the Red Devils and the Glamour Boys complete the job and reach this year’s final, then the latter team will be facing former Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Mosimane who is in charge of Al Ahly.
Winners in both fixtures on aggregate after two legs will square off in the final at the Stade Mohammed V in Casablanca, Morocco on 17 July 2021.
