Al Ahly on Wednesday night overturned the order in Group A after ending Wydad Casablanca’s 15 year old unbeaten home record in continental action to give their hosts in August’s Zesco United something to ponder about.
The record 8-time African champions beat Group A leaders Wydad 1-0 away in Rabat to collect their first win in the league phase of this years competition.
Rami Rabia headed in the games lone goal in the 46th minute to send ripples in Group A.
Wydad were unbeaten at home in continental cup action action since 2003 where they lost 1-0 to Etoile du Sahel in the defunct CAF Cup Winners Cup semifinals to see the Tunisians advance 3-0 on aggregate.
With that result, Al Ahly leave the basement of Group A for the first time to relegate ASEC Mimosa of Cote d’Ivoire from 3rd to bottom of the log tied on 4 points.
Al Ahly now hosts Zesco on August 12 in a make-or-break, penultimate Group A match at home in Egypt.
Meanwhile, Wydad continue to lead Group A tied with Zesco on 7 points after both sides early semifinal hopes were halted on Wednesday.
Zesco rallied to draw 1-1 away at ASEC in Abidjan.
