It was jubilation galore as 36 Lion Ambassador, Junior Ajayi was impressive for Al Ahly who have put one foot in the CAF Champions League quarterfinals.

The winger was a source of worry to Vita SC backline as Ahly ran riot 3-0 at Stade des Martyrs on Tuesday.

Mohamed Sherif, Mohamed “Afsha” Magdi and Taher Mohamed hit target for the Red Devils in Kinshasa.

The Cairo giants suffered a disappointing 2-2 draw at Cairo International Stadium in the third round of the Group A games last week.

With coach Pitso Mosimane starting Junior Ajayi at the wing, the ex 36 Lion student repaid the faith with a wonderful individual performance.

After a good day in office, Ajayi was subbed off for Hussein El-Shahat on 74 minutes.

The Reds will next face Al-Merreikh in Sudan, with a victory securing their place in the quarter-finals, and even a draw or a defeat would be enough in case Simba beat Vita Club at home on April 2.

Meanwhile, Tanzanian side Simba S.C are in the driving seat of Group A with 10 points after mauling Al-Merreikh 3-0, while Ahly are second with seven points.
