Ahmed Raouf’s last-gasp goal enough to seal Al Ahly’s progression
Ahmed Raouf’s goal in injury time was enough for the Red Devils to seal their progression to the Group Stage of the CAF Confederation Cup after winning the tie on away goals (2-2 agg).
Al Ahly’s starting XI:
Sherif Ekramy – Ahmed Nabil ‘Manga’ – Wael Gomaa – Saad El-Din Samir – Ahmed Shedid Kenawy – Rami Rabia – Hossam Ashour – Mahmoud Hassan ‘Trezeguet’ – Abdullah El-Said – Moussa Yedan – Ahmed Raouf
Difaa El Jadidi starting XI:
Zouheir Laaroubi – Ayoub Nanah – Brahim Nakach – Ahmed Chagou – Bakr El Helali- El Mehdi Karnas – Naby Soumah – Youssef Edrisso – Moustafa Flissate – Johan Diderot Lengoualama – Zakaria Hadraf
Mahmoud Hassan ‘Trezeguet’ missed a great chance which would’ve killed the tie when he failed to make the most of Moussa Yedan’s pinpoint cross.
A few minutes later, Ekramy was called into action when he saved Bakr El-Helali’s cross.
Difaa had the chance to put themselves 1-0 ahead after a fatal mistake by Wael Gomaa, but Saad Samir was there to cover up the veteran.
Trezeguet had a great chance to seal the tie but his finish went wide of the post.
Difaa were then awarded a penalty, and Ahmed Chagou stepped up and converted his spot kick to send the Stade El Abdi wild
Seventeen minutes later, the Morroccans were on the roll when Lengoualama took full advantage of Al Ahly’s defenesive mistakes to put Difaa El Jadidi ahead in the tie.
And when all hope seemed lost, Ahmed Raouf scored a crucial goal in the dying minutes when he latched onto Mohamed Nagy Gedo’s cross to seal the African Champions’ qualification to the next round.
