The historic club of Cairo, champions of the African Champions, won with a goal from Al Shahat and will face the German team next Monday, February 8.


Bayern Munich already knows their rival in the semi-final of the FIFA Club World Cup. It will be the African Champions League champion, the historic Al Ahly, who this Thursday beat the local representative, Al Duhail, by 0-1 and will now have, against the Germans, a historic opportunity to end a magical year, in the won the Egyptian League and Cup titles and finally regained continental glory after losing the 2017 and 2018 finals.

The Cairo giants, nine-time African champions, entered the field determined to confirm their favoritism and dominated the actions of the first half, cornering the Qataris who barely managed to cross the center of the field. The high pressure from those led by South African 'Jingles' Mosimane led to all kinds of problems for the reigning Qatari champion. The Egyptians almost scored twice at the beginning after errors in the exit of the ball and the third time, it was the charm. In the 30th minute, Walter Bwalya took advantage of a mistake by Karim Boudiaf on the edge of the area and stole the ball. Hussein El Shahat took the rebound and threw cross, flat, surprising goalkeeper Moussa, who could do nothing. Bwalya went so far as to score what appeared to be Al Ahly's second, after an incredible kick-off start. But the goal was disallowed by the VAR, which identified a millimeter offside from the former Zambian golden boot.

Sabri Lamouchi returned from the break with two daring changes to his Al Duhail, taking out a center-back for a forward, Ali Almoez, the hero of the Qatari national team's title at the 2019 Asian Cup. The 24-year-old forward caught fire the game and gave new life to the locals who, encouraged by their fans, which could occupy 30% of the Education City Stadium, brought a lot of danger to El Shenawy's goal on three occasions. If in two the veteran Egyptian goalkeeper made great saves, in a strong shot by Musa and a header by Muntari, in a shot by Almoez from the edge of the area the goalkeeper made an incredible mistake and almost rejected the ball into his own goal

At the end, Al Ahly managed to withstand the pressure and advanced to the semi-final, where it will be Bayern's rival. Eager to make history.
