Al Ahly of Egypt defeated Esperance of Tunisia by 3-0 on Friday night to set sight on the CAF Champions League finals.
Percy Tau scored a brace in the 8th and 55th minute of the game to mark his 29th birthday which falls on the next day before Kahraba sealed the win with a 3rd goal in the 75th minute to set the 10 times African Champions on the track to the finals.
The return league will be played in Cairo on May 19, and it feels clear that Ahly may go through to face WAC of Morocco or Mamelodi Sundown from South Africa.
The brace for Tau brings his Champions League goals this season to four as he keep impressing for Ahly.
Ahly have won two and drawn one in their previous Champions League Semi final matches played as they continue their fine form in the national stadium in Tunisia.
Esperance after the game were demoralized realising that their dream for a Champions league cup this season is fading out.
