Simba defeats Al-Ahly of Egypt and takes the lead in the Champions League
Simba, the Tanzanian, took the lead in Group A with his deserved victory over Al-Ahly with a clean goal on Tuesday, in the presence of 50,000 fans who gathered at the national stadium in the capital, Dar es Salaam, in the second round of the African Champions League group stage competitions.
It is the first loss for Al-Ahly Africa since South African Pitso Musimane took charge of coaching the team last October.
Mozambican scored the winning goal, Luis Micisoni (31), raising his team’s score to 6 points at the top of the group, while Al-Ahly’s balance stagnated at 3 points, retreating to third place, while Vita Club rose to second place with the same points balance and goal difference after achieving a big victory over its Sudanese host Al Merrikh 4-1 to be at the bottom of the ranking table without balance.
Simba was the most possessive and the most dangerous, thanks to the movements and speed of the pentagram, Mikisoni, Klatus Chama, Hassan Salih DeLonga, Kues Mugalo and Tadio Luna.
The landowners' breakthroughs varied from sides and depth, despite the defensive conglomeration of Al-Ahly players, but the brilliance of Mohamed El-Shenawy prevented Simba from scoring an early goal.
The offensive pressure of the owners of the land continued, and Al-Ahly players relied on the counterattacks, and Kahraba almost scored a goal from Junior Ajay's pass, but he hit a ball over the crossbar.
Simba succeeded in opening the scoring with a powerful shot by Mikisoni from outside the penalty area, which entered the upper left corner of the Al-Shennawi goal (31).
