The Cairo-based side is one of the most decorated and successful club football teams on the continent.
Look into Al Ahly's profile and you will understand why it is the "Club of the Century" in African football.
The Egyptian club wins its country's domestic league and cup competitions with ease and is one of the fiercest competitors in Africa.
But Al Ahly met a Mamelodi Sundowns side that has also proven to fear no club in Africa. However, even Downs coach Pitso Mosimane admitted after the CAF Champions League quarter-final clash on Saturday that he did not expect to win by that margin.
