Threats from Al-Ahly fans force Al-Hilal to “K”

The Sudanese club Al-Hilal announced, on Tuesday, that it had decided to address the Confederation of African Football (CAF), regarding what it described as threats issued by the Egyptian Al-Ahly fans, before an upcoming confrontation between the two teams in Cairo, the Egyptian capital, in the last round of the CAF Champions League group stage.
The club said in a statement on its Facebook page: “The council decided to address CAF through the club’s general secretary, and to attach all videos issued by Al-Ahly fans against Al-Hilal, which call for the broadcast and dissemination of hate speech.”
He added, “The club urges the Continental Union to take all measures that preserve and ensure the safety of the Crescent mission and its fans, from arrival to Cairo until departure.”
Al-Hilal defeated Al-Ahly 1-0 when it hosted it earlier in the group stage, and after the match, Al-Ahly filed a complaint about being subjected to “repeated abuses” from Al-Hilal Club and its fans, saying that its host: “He did not commit to organizing the match without a public presence due to the lack of safety conditions in the stadium, More than a thousand fans were allowed to attend the match.
Al-Ahly accused a member of Al-Hilal’s medical staff of assaulting defender Mohamed Abdel-Moneim with a medical tool, adding that this person continued on the bench despite being expelled from the referee, and tried to attack Al-Ahly’s goalkeeper and captain, Mohamed El-Shennawy, after the end of the match.
Al-Ahly needs to win 1-0 or by a difference of two goals to accompany the South African Sun Downs and qualify for the quarter-finals, while a draw will be sufficient for Al-Hilal to ensure passage to the next round.
Sun Downs leads the group and has 11 points, one point ahead of Al-Hilal, second in the ranking, and Al-Ahly comes in third place with seven points, while Cameroonian Coton Sport is in last place without points.
