Al Ahly are one step closer to clinch their ninth CAF Champions League title after a dramatic 3-1 victory over Esperance Sportive de Tunis at Borg El-Arab.

The return-leg will take part on Friday, November 9 at Stade Olympique de Radès in Tunisia, with Al Ahly needing at least a draw or a 1-0 loss to clinch the title.
