Stars advance to face Al-Ahly


The result gives Stars a 3-1 aggregate lead after goals from Steve Lekoelea and Simba Maruma handed them a 2-0 win a fortnight ago.

‘The Tycoons’ will now face Egyptian giants Al-Ahly in the next round, a prospect that excites coach Miguel Gamondi.

“It will be very interesting to face a team that has been the best in Africa for past 10 years. This will be good for the team and great experience for my players,” he says.

“We are definitely hungry to get the chance of playing Al-Ahly in the tournament so that we can gauge where we stand in relation to the best clubs on the continent.”
