Alhly wins African Champions league first leg with help of VAR

Walid Soliman scored two VAR penalties to give Egypt's Al Ahly a 3-1 first-leg win over Esperance in the African Champions League final in Alexandria. It was the first time VAR was used in a Champions League final and referee Mehdi Charef watched replays before awarding the spot kicks. Amr Elsolia scored the other goal for the hosts while Youcef Belaili converted a penalty for Esperance. The Egyptian club are aiming to win their ninth continental title. Tunisian side Esperance have won the title twice but they lost 1-0 at home to Ahly in the group stages of the competition. The second leg takes place at Stade Olympique in Rades on 9 November. The overall winners will also earn a place at December's Club World Cup in the United Arab Emirates. https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/46057470
