Al Ahly Hold Coton

Al Ahly star Mohamed Aboutrika again played a vital role for the Egyptian giants as he earned his side a 1-1 draw away to Coton Sport of Cameroon in their CAF Champions League semi-final first-leg on Sunday.

The game was originally set for Saturday but heavy rain saw the match abandoned in the second-half and was replayed on Sunday afternoon.

The result in Garoua will be a positive one for Al Ahly, as they head into the second-leg with a vital away goal - but did suffer a blow with coach Mohamed Youssef being sent to the stands for dissent. The coach was shown a red card during the second period.

The Cameroonian side drew first blood in the encounter though, scoring the opener in the 33rd minute when Ewangue Mbongo cut inside and lashed his shot in at the near post.

Coton then had to clear off the line at the other end to keep out a header from Ahmed Abdulzaher before Aboutrika netted a superb equaliser just before the break.

No goals arrived after the interval though, but luckily the torrential storms did not return and they were able to see the match to its conclusion.

With draws in both of the semi-final first-legs, it will be all to play for in two weeks as all four sides are still in with a shout to make the final.
