Tue, May. 15, 2018
CAIRO – 15 May 2018: Al-Ahly suffered a 2-0 loss against Kampala City FC on Tuesday in the second round of the CAF Champions League's group stage.
Al-Ahly now places fourth in the first group with only one point, while Kampala places second with three points.
Previously, the Reds suffered a 1-2 defeat against Zamalek in the Egyptian League; since then, Al-Ahly haven’t won any game; they were eliminated from Egypt's Cup against Al-Assiouty in the quarter final with a 0-1 loss, and ended their match against Tunisian Esperance Sportive in Borg El-Arab stadium with a 0-0 draw.
Al-Ahly's line-up in Kampala's match was: (GK) Mohamed el-Shenawy, (DEF) Mohamed Hany, Mohamed Naguib, Saad Samir, Sabry Raheel, (MID) Amr el-Soleya, Hossam Ashour, Walid Soliman, Baka, Mido Gaber, (ATT) Marwan Mohsen.
Al-Ahly started the game by pressing Kampala's back-line as it is considered the weakest line in Uganda's team which resulted in many mistakes on Kampala's side, leading the referee to rule a penalty for Al-Ahly in the 24th minute as it was a handball inside the box. Al-Ahly's midfielder, Walid Soliman, wasted the penalty to keep the score 0-0.
In the second half, Al-Ahly's coach Hossam el-Badry seemed pleased by the score until Kampala surprised him with the first goal in the 75th minute.
Al-Ahly's players tried to revive their hopes and score the equalizer but Kampala doubled the score in the 88th minute from the penalty spot.
