In a match valid for the quarterfinals of the Club World Cup from Morocco, Al Ahly defeated Seattle Sounders by 1-0 and will face Real Madrid in the next phase. The duel took place this Saturday at the Ibn Batouta Stadium in Tanger.
The winning goal for the Egyptians was scored by Afsha. With the result, Al Ahly and Real Madrid will play for a place in the final this Wednesday, at 4 pm (Brasília time). The match will take place at the Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium, in Rabat.
The first half was dominated by Seattle, but without great chances to open the scoring. In the 23rd minute, in the team’s best opportunity, Morris failed to head the ball correctly after the Al Ahly goalkeeper missed the goal in the corner.
Already in the second stage, the Egyptian team began to take more danger in the attack. In the 23rd minute, Afsha kicked at the edge of the area and the ball went to the right of goalkeeper Frei.
Al Ahly’s winning goal came at the end of the match. After Percy Tau hit the crossbar, Afsha took the rebound in a first-time shot from outside the area and sent it to the goal. The ball still deflected before entering the corner of goalkeeper Frei, at 43 of the second stage.
