Egypt’s Al-Ahly handball team clinched the African Champions League title on Sunday after defeating Tunisia’s Esperance de Tunis.

The Pharaohs walked away with the title with a 26-23 win against the Tunisian team, after the former gained ground in the first half of the match to reach a score of 15-13.

Egypt’s win at the championship, held in Burkina Faso, is the fifth time the Pharaohs have on the African Champions League title.

Meanwhile, Al-Ahly’s domestic rival, Zamalek, landed in third place, edging out Morocco’s Wydad Samara.

Egypt’s national handball team had previously defeated Tunisia in the African Men’s Handball Cup of Nations, marking the sixth time Egypt won the championship and the first time since 2008, with Algeria snagging the title in 2014 and Tunisia coming out on top in 2012 and 2010.
