Egypt's Al Ahly joined the clubs qualified for the quarter-finals of the African Champions League, after a great victory over its guest Al Hilal of Sudan by 3 goals without reply, on Saturday evening at Cairo International Stadium in the capital.

The match was held in the presence of about 50,<> spectators, in the final sixth round of the Group B competitions, and thanks to its victory, Al-Ahli booked the last card to the quarter-finals.

Mahmoud Abdel Moneim Kahraba scored the first goal in the 25th minute in a wonderful way after receiving and taming a ball passed to him by Ahmed Abdel Qader before shooting it into the net of Al-Hilal.

Substitute Hussein Al-Shahat added the second goal in the 64th minute after a through pass from South African Percy Tau, which he completed with a perfect shot in the goal.

Al-Shahat returned to add the third goal in the 81st minute from a longitudinal pass from Marwan Attia, where he easily prepared the ball inside the penalty area and shot it into the goalkeeper's net.

Al Ahly, the record holder in the number of titles in this competition with 10 editions, and the runner-up of the last edition, stripped its guest Al Hilal from second place in the group with a difference of two direct confrontations after they equalized points with 10 each, followed by Mamelodi Sundowns, the South African champions of the group, who beat Cameroonian Cotton Club 2-1.

Al-Ahli had lost the first leg by a goal, at the "Blue Jewel" stadium in Omdurman, where he needed to win by a single goal or by two goals if he conceded today, but he hit the treble.

Al-Hilal paid dearly for the waste of its international player Athar Al-Taher a penalty kick in stoppage time in the match against Sundowns (1-1) in the fifth round that was enough to settle things before facing the Cairo club.
