Al Ahly booked a CAF Champions League semifinal clash with ES Setif by thumping Horoya 4-0.

A goalless first leg left the tie in the balance, but home advantage made the eight-time champion strong favourite for Saturday's return clash.

Walid Soliman struck in the 32nd minute to give the Egyptian giant a first-half lead at the Al Salam Stadium in Cairo. But it was after the interval when Al Ahly - beaten by Wydad Casablanca in the final of last season's edition - made its superiority count.

Soliman set up Islam Mohareb for the second goal in the 53rd minute and the midfielder was the provider again for the third, with Salah Mohsen on target.

That strike put the result beyond doubt, but Al Ahly added further gloss to the scoreline with Ahmed Fathy completing the scoring in the stoppage time.
