Misr El-Maqassa has gained a slight advantage over Al Ahli Tripoli after drawing 0-0 in Libya ahead of the return leg of the CAF Confederations Cup second 1/8th that will be played in Egypt.

Maqassa reached the this stage after defeating Algerian side CS Constantine 3-2 on aggregate despite losing the away leg. On the other hand, Ahli Tripoli were eliminated from the CAF Champions League group stage qualifiers.

El-Maqassa XI: Mahmoud Hamdy; Hosny Fathi, Ahmed Samy, Abdel-Hamid Samy, Amr Barakat; Hany Said, Abu Bakr Abdel-Latif, Mahmoud Dounga; Mido Gaber, Omar Maidi, Nana Poku.

The match lacked creativity with both sides failing to register enough chances to score.

A sudden spark from the home team late in the first half almost helped them score, but Maqassa’s organized play helped them avoid a goal.

The same scenario was played out by both teams in the second half, with Al Ahli producing a few dangerous chances but the team’s forward’s couldn’t convert them into goals.

The visitors made two attacking substitutions in the final five minutes in an attempt to snatch a late winner, but they were unsuccessful.

The return leg will be played on the 18th of May in Egypt and the winner will progress to the next stage of the CAF Confederations Cup.
