The African champions had to enter the game without many of its important players, as some are on international service for the Africa Cup of Nations, while others are absent due to injury.

Monterrey dominated the first half and had multiple chances to score, but Meza and Funes Mori were unable to convert.

Al AhlyΒ piled on the pressure early in the second half, which were rewarded when Mohamed Hany scored a remarkable goal in the 51st minute.

Mohamed Magdy Afsha found Maaloul on the left flank with a clever ball, before the Tunisian fired in a low shot that the keeper parried away, but only as far as Mohamed Hany, who scored from outside the box with only one contact.Club World Cup: Al Ahly qualifies for Semi Finals
