Thursday, February 20, 2014
CAIRO - Egypt's football giants Al-Ahly snatched its 6th CAF Super Cup title on Thursday after defeating Tunisia's CS Sfaxien 3-2 at the Cairo Stadium.
Strikers Mohamed Nagi Geddo and Amr Gamal netted for the Egyptian champion, while Ali Maaloul and Fakhereedine Ben Youssef scored for the Tunisians
Thursday's game was an annual one-off match-up between the Champions League and Confederation Cup holders.
The Red Devil hosts did not perform very well, but the win was a major boost given their poor performance in the local league.
Egyptian authorities had waived a security-linked spectator ban imposed on most football fixtures, allowing a 30,000 crowd to show up.

Casualties were reported among the fans and security personnel.
The Interior Ministry has yet to comment on the incident.
