Esperance de Tunis beat Al Ahly 4-3 on aggregate to win the 2018 Caf Champions League at Olympic Stadium –Rades, Tunisia Friday night for their third title.
The Tunisians successfully overturned 3-1 first leg loss to the Egyptians by producing a magnificent performance to win 3-0.
Saad Beguir was the showstopper, grabbing a brace in the 45th and 54th minutes to complete the turnaround before Anice Badri sealed the big win in the 86th minute.
Esperance previously won the Holy Grail of African football in 1994 and 2011.
Apart from the gong, the Tunisians took home $2.5 million prize money and a ticket to represent Africa in the FIFA Club World Cup in the UAE in December.
For record eight-time champions Al Ahly, it was another bitter pill to swallow after losing the final for the second time on the trot.
The African club of the century fell to Morocco’s Wydad Casablanca at the same stage last year.
