Had absolutely no chance to stop Guerrero's pinpoint header. Bravely stayed on the pitch after going down with a thigh injury in the second half, but eventually was forced off.
Could have done more to track Guerrero for the game's only goal. Did not cope well with Corinthians' fast counter-attacking, but battled gamely against the Brazilians.
Stood out with a wonderful intervention that denied Paulinho when the goal was at the midfielder's mercy.
Dealt well with Corinthians' threat from set-pieces, although occasionally suffered when challenged on the floor by the likes of Emerson.
One of Al-Ahly's principal threats moving into the final third, but lacked precision feeding his strikers.
Had one of his side's best chances of the encounter, firing just wide after bursting into the box on a swift counter-attack.
Abdalla El Said
Failed to convince in the face of fierce Timao marking, and it was no surprise when he was withdrawn for the second half.
The Egypt international controlled possession well and looked more lively in the second half, but struggled to get the ball forward with enough penetration.
One of the stand-out figures for the Egyptians, tackled tenaciously and tried to stem the attacks emanating through Paulinho and Danilo.
Forced to feed off scraps of possession throughout the night and marshalled well by the Corinthians backline.
Al Sayed Hamdy
Guilty of squandering a gilt-edged chance when he failed to control a ball over the top, a moment which cost Al Ahly dearly as they went down to the Brazilians.
A virtual spectator for large swathes of the match, rarely called into action by the Egyptian team. Much busier in the second half, and made a couple of key saves to assure victory.
Was guilty of ball-watching for the long pass that almost set up Fathi for the equaliser, otherwise impressed in the middle of defence, continually frustrating Al Ahly's efforts to draw level.
Always a threat overlapping on the right, providing width and penetration for his team. His lackadaisical approach to keeping possession posed a problem, however, when Al Ahly fought back into the game.
Almost let Rabia in for an equaliser thanks to a rushed clearance, a rare mistake in a solid display over the 90 minutes.
Did not supply the same explosive edge on the flank that Alessandro provided, but put in a solid performance with some confident defending.
Controlled the tempo of the game from midfield, the defensive foil to Paulinho's more ambitious game. Made several decisive interventions.
Moved the ball around well, but lacked the incisiveness to help his side build on the early goal and win in a more convincing fashion.
Never skipped a beat, distributed with class and showed why he is such an idol with the Corinthians fans.
The Peruvian is formidable in the air, and he demonstrated his prowess with a fantastic header that gave Ekramy no chance in goal to open the scoring.
Mahmoud El Saoud
Forced into action in the second half thanks to Ekramy's injury, but was well guarded by his defence and had an uneventful cameo.
Mohamed Abo Trika
The Egyptians looked a different team after half-time with the playmaker on the field, as he inspired a much better effort. Came close with a shot that forced a good save from Cassio.
