One victory, 6 draws and 8 defeats .. Al-Ahly is away from the ground in the African semi-finals

Al-Ahly team is preparing for its seventeenth appearance in the semi-finals of the African Champions League, as it has left a great football legacy in previous times, placing it at the head of the greatest clubs in the continent.

Al-Ahly will play with Esperance in Tunisia on June 19 in the first leg of the semi-finals of the African Champions League, while the return match will be held on June 26 in Cairo in the second leg of the semi-final of the African Championship, which Al-Ahly holds its title.

The African champion and the semi-finalist played outside the ground 16 times previously, winning, losing and drawing, but whatever the results are, they often lead him to the final scene.

The irony in Al-Ahly’s numbers is that he rarely wins outside the ground in the semi-finals, and if we exclude his match with Zamalek in 2005, Al-Ahly played 15 times outside Egypt, only won once, lost on 8 occasions and drew in 6 meetings.
