Alaya Brigui opened the scoring for the Tunisian side in the 15th minute, before Saleh Gomaa equalised in the 66th minute, however it was a short-lived joy for the Egyptians as Etoile regained the lead in the 75th minute through Ben Amor.

CAF have announced that the second-leg of the semi-finals will take place at Borg El-Arab, Alexandria on Sunday, October 22 at 19:00 CLT, with Al Ahly needing to win at least 1-0 in Alexandria to advance to the final.
