In Pictures: Al Ahly Approaches The Semi-Finals, Defeating Al Zamalek

Once again, the clash of the two football giants, Al Ahly and Al Zamalek, has ended in favor of Al Ahly; through a decisive header by Abu Treka.

Al Ahly defeated their arch-rivals Al Zamalek 1-0 in the second round of 2012 African Champions League group stage matches; in the first time the two teams have met since the Port Said massacre earlier this year.The win is a major boost for the Red Devils chances of reaching the semifinals as they now have two wins from two, while for Zamalek it was a second straight defeat that leaves their hopes hanging by a thread.The decisive moment of the match came on 79 minutes when veteran Ahly midfielder Mohamed Abu Treka ghosted his way in between two defenders to get on the end of a delightful chipped cross from Mohamed Nagi.

Al Ahly now leads Group A with six points, followed by Chelsea (four points), TP Mazembe (one) and Zamalek (zero).
