17 July 23:05

After Mashiane's red card, it was simply just too much for Chiefs to handle. Al Ahly claims their 10th CAF Champions League title, while Pitso Mosimane collects his third winner's medal tonight.

17 July 22:33


17 July 22:32

71' Chiefs now facing a further crossroads in this match. Do they open up and push more men forward or sit back? 

17 July 22:27

67' Al Ahly change: Dieng on, Taher off.

17 July 22:27

Ashfa giving Al Ahly a two-goal cushion as they use their extra man to their advantage in attack. Brilliant finish!

17 July 22:24


17 July 22:20

59' Second Chiefs substitution here with Agay replacing Blom.

17 July 22:17

56' CHANCE! Tahir in the Chiefs 18th area but his first touch puts him off before his can take a shot only for Rama to clear the danger.

17 July 22:15

Classy goal by Sherif as a through ball splits the Chiefs defence and the forward makes no mistake with putting it beyond Akpeyi's reach.

17 July 22:13


17 July 22:06

Stuart Baxter has opted to make a change. 

Billiat is introduced to the match for Ncgobo.

17 July 22:05

45' Second-half is under way ...

17 July 21:51


17 July 21:50

After a VAR check, Mashiane's original yellow card shown for the late challenge has changed to a red card!

Absolute scenes! 

17 July 21:50

47' Oh boy. A RED CARD is shown to Happy Mashiane for a nasty tackle. 

Chiefs down to 10 men! 

17 July 21:48

45' One minute of added time. 

17 July 21:47

44' PENALTY SHOUT! Sherif goes down but the referee waves play on. Replay shows that the forward was already on his way down before Akpeyi clips him.

17 July 21:41

38' Al Ahly very cohesive moving forward. The ball moving around the pitch with much ease but Chiefs remain strong with their defending.

17 July 21:39

33' Chiefs chasing tails here despite no real threat on goal by Al Ahly.

17 July 21:38

30' Still goalless at the Mohamed V Stadium.

17 July 21:18

15' CHANCE! And the wheel changes for a second has Katsande plays a ball from deep and finds Frosler on the left flank in Al Ahly's half. The defender quickly sees Nurkovic in space and the Serbian ball collects and with a slight movement forward hits a curling effort into the arms of the 'keeper. 

A great effort and play by Chiefs.

17 July 21:13

12' Chiefs seem content with Al Ahly dominating play at the moment. Not committing too many shirts forward too. When will the wheel change? 

17 July 21:09

7' Al Ahly seeing the majority of the ball so far as expected. Lovely pace on the wing on either side for Mosimane's charges. 

17 July 21:06

3' Pitso Mosimane looks relatively at ease. The same can be said of Stuart Baxter, who is taking charge of Chiefs for the first time from the technical area after his work permit has been approved.

17 July 21:04

1' The whistle for the first-half has sounded. Game on!

"They play very good football in terms of their own way of playing, and you have to respect their own way of playing.

"Their own way of playing has made them go through Wydad, and Wydad is not a small team. And their own way has helped them go through Simba, and Simba is not a small team.

"And how would you come to the final if your way of playing is not effective?" - Al Ahly head coach - Pitso Mosimane.

17 July 19:16


"This is the first game on the bench. I've been with the club for a few weeks, so I have been working with the players. But being on the bench is special. And this match is special.

"I think the players worked very hard in their preparations. We have had a lot of challenges from that perspective, as you say. The players have managed to surprise everybody.

"Do we have one more surprise within us? We'll see on the night." - Kaizer Chiefs head coach Stuart Baxter.
