Esperance fans clash with police before CAF Champions League tie against Al Ahly

Esperance fans clashed with police at the Olympic Stadium in Rades prior to the kick-off of their CAF Champions League semi-final tie against Al Ahly on Saturday.

The clashes started after a large number of Esperance fans forced their way into the ground despite COVID-19 restrictions.

Al Ahly had to abandon their pre-match warm-up when tear gas drifted onto the pitch as police tried to control the home fans in the stands.

The game was delayed for an hour.
