Al-Ahly in the African League against Simba of Tanzania, which took place in Dar Salam last October 20, and finally in the first leg of the semi-final in the same tournament against Sun Downs of South Africa, which was held in Pretoria yesterday.

Al-Ahly said in his speech that all of these matches witnessed arbitration errors that directly affected their results, which reflects a negative image of African football.

In its letter, Al-Ahly Club asked CAF to take urgent steps to restore matters to normal, and for the referees to be keen to achieve the principle of justice between competing teams to ensure the success of African competitions.

Al-Ahly lost to Sun Downs with a clean goal in the first leg in South Africa, and needs to win by two clean goals to guarantee a ticket to the African League final, and wait for the winner of the other semi-final between Wydad of Morocco and Esperance of Tunisia.
