Al Ahly Tripoli 2-0 Wa All Stars (Agg: 5-1): Ghanaian champions crash out of Caf Champions League

The Northern Blues suffered an early elimination from the competition after failing to beat their Libyan opponents at the preliminary stage

Ghana's campaign in 2017 continental club football ended on Sunday following Wa All Stars' 2-0 defeat to Libyan outfit Al Ahly Tripoli in the Caf Champions League preliminary round.

With a 3-1 home reversal in the first leg last weekend, the Northern Blues bowed out on a 5-1 aggregate.

Earlier on Saturday, Bechem United were kicked out of the Caf Confederation Cup by Algerian outfit MC Alger following a 5-3 defeat on aggregate.

The Ahly-All Stars match was played at the Stade Olympique D'el Menzeh in Tunisia due to security concerns in Libya.

Muaid Ellafi gave Ahly an early lead from a neat free-kick on one minute.

After half-time, Anis Mohamed Saltou added a second for Ahly in the 63rd minute to kill the game.
