Egyptian giants Al Ahly continue their dominance in the African Champions League, winning the top club competition for a record-breaking eleventh time after scoring a late equaliser to grab a 1-1 draw against Wydad Casablanca of Morocco on Sunday.

It was their fourth successive final and sixth in the last seven editions for the Cairo giant.

Al Ahly’s defender Mohamed Abdelmoneim flicked on a corner from Ali Maaloul with 13 minutes remaining to secure the much-needed 3-2 aggregate scoreline as the Cairo club extended their record to the 11th top club continental title.

Following a 2-1 first-leg defeat in Egypt last Sunday, Wydad had been on course to win on the away goals when fullback Yahya Attiat Allah scored a 27th-minute free kick to hand the home team the lead in front of the gigantic 50,000-strong crowd at Casabalanca’s Mohamed V Stadium.

The goal lifted the home crowned as Wydad were looking to complete a dream season for Moroccan football. But the giant Cairo club reaffirmed their status as Africa’s top side after losing to Wydad in last year’s final.

The Red Devils have now won more than double the number of titles in Africa’s top club competition than their nearest rivals.
