A huge battle for position in group A of the CAF Champions League at the Stade des Martyres in the Democratic Republic of Congo. A playground considered a fortress for local side AS Vita Club was desecrated by visiting Al Ahly of Egypt.
A rare score, an unwanted jab for the home crowd, Vita club loosing by 3-0 comes far and between.
The home side were shocked by the visitors who drew first blood early in the game. Mohamed Sherif scored at the 6th minute of a game that rarely favored the home side.
Mohamed Magdy crafted the second goal for the visitors at the 19th minute and gave the home side lots to think about at the break. Florent Ibengue's team has hardly fallen short of glory especially in their domestic campaign but all looked set for a second Champions League defeat for Vita Club. Group A leaders Simba had left Congo with a 1-0 win against Vita Club on match day 1.
Taher Mohamed secured victory for the revived Egyptian Giants at the 78th minute and put the game beyond Vita Club.
Ahly's head coach Pitso Mosimane who has come under serious questioning following a series of unwanted results by the All time best African club side, can take a sigh of relief as the win puts them in second spot on the perking order in group A, 7 points, just three within touching distance to leaders Simba with 10 points.
AS Vita Club dominated possessions with a greater 64 percent, 14 attempts yet none on target, 10 corners, 548 passes as against 333 for the visitors.
