Al-Ahly Tripoli brushed the Egyptian Pyramids from the top of Group A of this season’s CAF Confederation Cup after beating them 1-0 at the Benina Martyrs Stadium on Sunday, ending their undefeated streak.
Pyramids' defender Omar Jaber handed Al-Ahly Tripoli their win after shooting a ball by mistake in his teams' end in minute 54.
With this victory, Al-Ahly leads the way to the quarter-finals of the CAF Confederation Cup in Group A with 12 points, followed by the Pyramids with 10 points.
The last round of Group A matches will conclude at the beginning of April when Sfaxien hosts Al-Ahly Tripoli, and Pyramids will compete with the Zambian Zanaco. The matches will have no effects on Al-Ahly Tripoli and the Egyptian Pyramids, which are already through to the quarter-finals.
