Al Ahly achieved an important 1-0 win in the first leg in Tunisia thanks to a goal from Mohamed Sherif and they are heading to the home game with a slight advantage.
The Red Eagles want to secure their spot in the final and avoid the surprises of the Tunisians, who are famous for having better performances when they play away from home.
The winner of the tie will face the winner between South Africa's Kaiser Chiefs and Wydad Casablanca of Morocco. The first leg in Morocco ended with a 1-0 win for the visitors.
