Ahly's Uruguayan coach Martin Lasarte has praised the performance of his players after Ahly opened their African Champions League campaign with a 2-0 win over DR Congo's Vita Club on Saturday.

Two second-half goals from substitute Nasser Maher and Tunisian left-back Ali Maaloul earned Ahly a deserved 2-0 home win over 10-man Vita Club in the CAF Champions League’s Group D.

"We achieved our target from the game gaining an important three points in the team's campaign in the CAF Champions League," Lasarte was quoted as saying on the club's official website after the game.

"We did our best from the start of the game to snatch victory as it was important for the team to win in the opening game of the group stage."

"I am still in the stage of discovering the players to settle the team's regular starting line-up," he added.

The Red Devils, who lost the Champions League in the final in the past two seasons, are second in the group with three points, behind leaders Simba on goal difference after the Tanzanian side crushed Algeria's JS Saoura 3-0 earlier on Saturday.
