Somebody has to stop Egyptian super club Al Ahly.

But by the look of things that doesn't seem possible in the foreseeable future.

This after Nigerian giants Enyimba and Al Ahly played out a goalless draw in the first leg semifinal of the CAF Champions League decided in Aba, southeast Nigeria, last Sunday.

This was the first draw Enyimba have recorded at home in this year's campaign.

It was a clash with very few chances as Ahly played a very defensive game while Enyimba never really got going even with the competition's leading scorer with 13 goals, Stephen Worgu spearheading their attack, according to Sapa-AFP.

Worgu is the target of South African soccer giants Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns.

Supporters of these clubs will get the opportunity to see the striker in action when highlights from the game are screened on the African Soccer Television show on SABC1 Sports' Laduma programme on Sunday.

In the other semifinal Cotonsport of Cameroon put one foot in the CAF Champions League final after defeating Dynamos of Zimbabwe 1-0 on Sunday.

Both teams adopted cautious formations and the visitors made the breakthrough on 32 minutes when Niger-born striker Kamilou Daouda scored with a fine header.

The second legs will be played on October 18 and 19.

Other highlights on the show include the 2-0 victory by Juventus FC over Yopougon Dabou Omness FC in the Ivorian Football Federation's Women's Cup final.

Action from the qualifiers for the 16th African Youth Championships in Rwanda next year comes from Ivory Coast's narrow 1-0 victory over an obstinate Burkina Faso.

And in the group stages of the 2008 CAF Confederations Cup, Asante Kotoko were held to a 2-all draw by Etoile de Sahel at home.
