The defending champions of the CAF Champions League on Sunday beat Al Hilal to the last spot for the quarter-finals.
Both teams before the game had the chance to pick up the last slot with seven teams already confirmed although the advantage was with Al Ahly who played at home.
Hussein El Shahat stepped off the bench to score the winner for the Red Devils, though a draw would still have been enough to sail Pitso Mosimane’s side into the last eight.
The victory saw Ahly finish second in Group A with 10 points from three wins and a draw, six points behind group leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.
At the Mohamed V Stadium in Casablanca, Raja Club Athletic cemented their place on top of Group B with a 1-0 win over Algeria’s ES Setif, though both sides had already qualified to the quarter finals.
Marouane Hadhoudi scored the lone goal of the match, powering home a 74th minute header from a Mohamed Nahiri corner.
The home side had most of the chances, including a ninth minute penalty that was missed by Hamid Ahadad. They had more in the second half and the closest before the goal was in the 54th minute when Fabrice Ngoma’s thunderous strike from range came off the upright.
Raja finish the group phase with 15 points off five wins, their only blemish being a shock away loss to Guinean side Horoya. Setif are second with nine points from three wins.
