Al Ahly team - file
Al-Ahly's first team soccer mission arrived in Pretoria in South Africa after a nearly 10-hour trip.

Al-Ahly beat Sundowns 2-0 in the first leg match that was held at Cairo Stadium last Saturday night.
The opening goal came from a wonderful play between the left flank stars Maaloul and Junior Ajayi who passed the ball to the Tunisian to put him one on one situation with the goalkeeper who failed to stop Maaloul's shot.
The referee awarded the Red Devils a penalty minutes later as Sundowns defender tackled Al Ahly striker, Aliou Bedji.
Al Ahly first choice penalty-taker Maaloul converted the spot kick to make the score 2_0.
The two teams will meet again at the second leg on 7 March in Pretoria.
