Ahly to Face Ghana's Medeama in CAF Champions League

Friday، 23 February 2024 - 09:11 AM

Egyptian giants Ahly traveled to Ghana to compete against Medeama in the fifth round of the CAF Champions League group stage at TNA Park on Friday 23/2/2024.

With six points from four rounds, Ahly lead the group, while Medeama sit at the bottom with four points.

Ahly requested the Confederation of African Football (CAF) to postpone the game after their private jet was involved in a minor accident at Accra airport in Ghana on Wednesday 21/2/2024.

In a statement on Ahly's official website, it was revealed that the plane was unfit to fly, and with no alternative means of transportation available, playing the game as scheduled on Friday 23/2/2024 would be extremely challenging.

"The club has therefore approached CAF to request a postponement of the match," the statement added.

Ultimately, Ahly's plane arrived in Kumasi City, Ghana on Thursday, a mere 24 hours before the game.
