Al Ahly thrash Kaizers Chiefs to clinch 10th champions league title



It was a CAF Champions League final debut appearance to forget for Daniel Akpeyi and his Kaizer Chiefs as they were hammered 3-0 by Al Ahly in Saturday’s clash in Casablanca.

Akpeyi was given the nod to man the post for Kaizer Chiefs while his compatriot Junior Ajayi came on in the 90th minute for Al Ahly’s goal scorer, Mohamed Sherif.

Ajayi has now won the CAF Champions League two times after picking his first title in 2020.

After a keenly contested encounter, Kaizer Chiefs were reduced to 10 men late in the first half after Happy Mashiane was shown a straight red card for a reckless tackle.

It is now a record-extending 10th title for Al Ahly who also won it last year.
