Effectively, that was a dramatic finale!
Al Ahly’s late deflected strike sinks the Seattle Sounders and sends them packing their luggage, whereas the Egyptian dream continues and they’re going to now face the UEFA Champions League winners Actual Madrid within the subsequent spherical.
The sport bordered on descent into chaos however each groups nearly managed to carry issues collectively, and it took a late deflection to separate the 2 groups.
Total, Seattle Sounders needs to be disenchanted, they did not take their probabilities within the first half and it got here again to chunk them ultimately.
As for Al Ahly, the story is strictly the other to that of the MLS facet: they held on effectively and when the prospect arose, Afsha was there to pounce (though on first viewing I believed it was Sherif, which entered my thoughts right into a world of Police puns) and seal the deal.
They’ll face Actual Madrid on 11 February.
