Title showdown under a cloud
Al Ahly of Egypt take a 3-1 lead over Esperance of Tunisia to the Caf Champions League final second leg on Friday against a backdrop of a tarnished African club football image.
The first leg in Alexandria last weekend was marred by two controversial VAR (video assistant referee) penalties for Ahly, with Walid Soliman converting both.
Furious Esperance players and coaches accused Ahly striker Walid Azaro of diving to win the first spotkick and of feigning injury and tearing his shirt for the second. –
