After Ali Maaloul’s penalty put Ahly ahead, goalkeeper Mohamed Elshenawy emerged as the early hero by saving a Benzema spot-kick on the stroke of half-time.

The Egyptian side controlled the match from the start and it came as no surprise when they took the lead midway through the first half when striker Ali Maaloul converted a penalty after Hassan Kadesh was adjudged to have handled the ball.

Maaloul sent goalkeeper Abdullah Almayouf the wrong way, striking the ball straight down the middle.

Al Ittihad had the chance to equalise before half-time when they were awarded a penalty of their own after Mohamed Abdelmoneim was penalised for handball.informationguidenigeria
