African Champions League: Al Ahly beat Zamalek in all-Egypt final

A sensational late Mohamed Magdy goal gave Al Ahly victory over Cairo rivals Zamalek in the first ever one-legged African Champions League final.

Magdy’s 88th-minute winner settled an entertaining match in which his side had gone ahead early through Amr El Soleya, only for Shikabala to cancel that out before half-time with a world-class effort of his own.

Ahly should already have been leading after Elshahat somehow hit the post when faced with a completely empty net early in the second half.

The win gave them a record-extending ninth African Champions League crown, and also means their boss, South African Pitso Mosimane, becomes just the third coach to win the title with two different clubs.
