With plenty still to play for and ES Tunis’ away goal giving them the much needed confidence, the second leg promises to be full of action and excitement.
Both sides have won the competition a total of 10 times, with Al Ahly holding the record for most CAF Champions League trophies at 8. ES Tunis have won it twice but have been runners up 4 times, their last being in 2012.
The Egyptian side will have to play without their star striker Walid Azarou, who was heavily punished by Africa’s football governing body following his actions in the first leg.
The 23 year old Moroccan striker was caught on camera tearing his shirt as the referee consulted VAR, resulting in a two match ban and a fine for the player.
