Downs rivals drop points, Ahly win again

CAF Champions League

Pitso Mosimane's Al Ahly returned to winning ways in the CAF Champions League while Mamelodi Sundowns' Group C rivals dropped points.

Vita Club 0-3 Al Ahly

After playing out a draw and a loss in their last two Champions League matches, reigning champions Al Ahly returned to winning ways with a 3-0 win over AS Vita Club, courtesy of goals from Mohamed Sherif, Mohamed Magdi Kafsha and Taher Mohamed. Tuesday's result saw Pitso Mosimane's side jump above their Congolese opponents in the Group A table and into a strong position to progress to the next round.

Simba 3-0 Al Merreikh

Ahly's Group A rivals Simba maintained their unbeaten run in this season's campaign after recording a resounding 3-0 win over Al Merreikh. Former Mamelodi Sundowns forward Luis Miquisonne continued his fine form this season with the game's opening goal, before Mohammed Husseini and Mutshimba Mugala secured all three points for the Tanzanian giants.

Al Hilal Omdurman 0-0 Belouizdad

Elsewhere, Sundowns' Group B opponents Al Hilal Omdurman and Belouizdad played out a goalless draw, meaning Masandawa, who play TP Mazembe later on Tuesday, remain the only side from the group to have recorded a win this season.
