El Al-Ahly of Egypt defeated the Kaizer Chiefs of South Africa 3-0 in the final of the African Champions League, played this Saturday in the city of Casablanca, Morocco. The African club from Cairo won its tenth title in this competition and won its 27th star in international tournaments, remaining only two behind the giant Real Madrid of Spain (29).
New title won by Al-Ahly, the biggest club in Africa and fighting to be the one with the most trophies in the world, undoubtedly an impressive mark. "The Red Devils" establish their continental dominance a little more, after winning their fourth African Champions League in the last ten years (2012, 2013, 2020 and 2021). In this case they beat the South African Kaizer Chiefs by a resounding 3 against 0.
Thanks to this trophy, the Egyptian team will be in the next Club World Cup in Japan, along with Chelsea for example, the last Champions League champion. In addition to being very close to Real Madrid, which has not won an international trophy since 2018, the Egyptians are increasingly expanding their dominance on the African continent.
Its ten stars are double those achieved by its close rivals, such as Zamalek (Egypt) and TP Mazembe (Congo), both with 5. Among other particular data of this club, Al-Ahly was only one trophy away from reaching Real Madrid in current international titles. In addition, as reported by the user ‘RMCF Identity’ on Twitter, the Egyptian team is the team with the most official international titles of the 21st century, winning 16 (2 more than Real Madrid).
