JOHANNESBURG: The second leg of this year s African Champions League final will not be played at the home ground of Tunisia s CS Sfaxien but moved some 200 km north near the capital Tunis, the Confederation of African Football said on Wednesday. The home ground of the Tunisian club, which has a capacity of 22,000, has been deemed too small for the second leg of the final against holders Al-Ahly of Egypt. The game will be staged at the Nov. 7 stadium in Rades, on the outskirts of Tunis, where the 2004 African Nations Cup final was played. It has a capacity of 60,000. CAF has set the dates with Al-Ahly hosting the first leg on Sunday, Oct. 29. It will be played at the Cairo International stadium, venue of this year s Nations Cup final.
The second leg at Rades is on Nov. 12. Al-Ahly is bidding for a record-equalling fifth Champions League title while Sfax are appearing in the final for a first time.
