CAF Champions League title holders Al Ahly made their way to the 2020/2021 season final after thrashing Esperance of Tunisia 3-0 in the semi-final return leg on Saturday at Al Salaam stadium in Cairo, Egypt.

Al Maaloul well converted penalty in the first half and strikes from Mohamed Sharif and Hussein ElShahat guided the Red Devils to their 14th final, ejecting Esperance 4-0 on aggregate. The first leg in Tunis ended 1-0 in favour of Al Ahly.

Esperance played over 55 minutes with ten men after Ilyes Cheti was given marching orders for denying a goal scoring opportunity before the halftime whistle.

Al Ahly will play Kaizer Chiefs in the final scheduled to be played in Morocco on July 17 with the Amakhosi targeting their first title while Al Ahly will be chasing their 10th in the competition.

The Chiefs held Moroccan giants Wydad Casablanca to a barren draw in the second semi-final clash advancing with a 1-0 aggregate win at the FNB stadium in South Africa.

Having finished 8th in the DSTV Premier Soccer League last season, Chiefs will be playing in the Champions League final for the first time, targeting their maiden triumph.
