Goals from Mohamed Sherif and Salah Mohsen in the second half were enough as Al Ahly of Egypt 2-0 triumph over Renaissance Berkane of Morocco in the CAF Super Cup earned them their 21st African title on Friday.
The annual contest between the CAF Champions League and second-tier CAF Confederation Cup winners was watched by a crowd limited to 7,000 in the Jassim bin Hamad Stadium in Doha.
The Egyptians were dominant over their Total CAF Confederation Cup counterparts. The win means a second continental title for Al Ahly’s South African boss Pitso Mosimane since joining the Cairo giants in October last year.
The result confirmed the supremacy of Ahly among African clubs with nine victories in the Champions League, seven in the Super Cup, four in the African Cup Winners Cup and one in the Confederation Cup.
They have won 10 more titles than the next most successful clubs, fellow Egyptians Zamalek and TP Mazembe from the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Ahly qualified for the Super Cup by defeating Zamalek in the 2020 Champions League final while Berkane secured their place with a victory over Pyramids of Egypt in the Confederation Cup decider.
