The CAF Champions League top scorer is already on 9 goals, as he helped Etoile Sahel cruise in Zimbabwe. On their part, Al Ahly to were far more dominant than the scoreline suggests.
Al Ahly 2-1 Al Hilal
Magdi Afsha delivered a top class performance to lead his team to a group stage win. He was the first player to test the keeper. He later switched play to an on-rushing El-Shahat, on the right side of the pitch, who made it 1-0 on the 15th minute. Sobhy’s penalty on the 37th minute was goal number two.
Coach, Rene Weiler was pleased with his team’s “modern football” approach. But they never added onto the tally. Instead, complacency saw Hilal pull a goal back in added time of the second half.
Hilal’s coach, Adam Salah was unfortunate to be sacked. His club seems unable to resist the availability of coach Micho.
Platinum FC 0-3 Etoile Sahel
The Sousse team made up for a dreadful opening day performance with the biggest win of the round. And they did this away from home. Algerian, Karim Aribi scored either side of halftime before Haj Hassen’s late one put the cherry on top.
Would you believe that Aribi is now on 9 goals. He scored 7 before the group stage. Should those goals really count?
