Holders Al Ahly thrashed 10-man Esperance 3-0 on the night and 4-0 on aggregate as they book a date with South African Kaizer Chiefs for the July 17 TotalEnergies CAF Champions League grand final.

Ali Maaloul opened the scoring from the penalty spot as the Red Devils scored two more second-half goals from Mohamed Sherif and Hussein Elshahat to cement their victory at the AL Salaam Stadium in Cairo.

Esperance, however, created some early chances, but despite their dominating possession, they failed to carve a way through the lines of Al Ahly’s defence.
