CAF Champions League: Medeama suffer defeat to Al Ahly 

The Ghanaian Premier League champions, Medeama SC, faced a tough defeat at the hands of Al Ahly FC at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, with a scoreline of 1-0. Despite their efforts to secure a much-needed victory to boost their chances of advancing to the knockout stage, the Yellow and Mauve boys fell short against the formidable Egyptian side.

Medeama started the game with determination, creating several scoring opportunities in the first half but failing to convert any into goals. Unfortunately, their strong performance in the initial period did not translate into tangible results as they headed into the second half trailing behind.

The tide turned in the 48th minute when Al Ahly's Hussein El Shahat capitalized on a brilliant attack, finishing with finesse after receiving a pass from his teammate Anthony Modeste. Despite Medeama's efforts to stage a comeback in the remaining minutes of the game, Al Ahly's solid defense held firm, denying any chances of an upset.

With this defeat, the Ghanaian champions now face a challenging road ahead as they await the outcome of the match between Young Africans and CR Belouizdad to assess their prospects of advancing to the knockout stage of the competition.
