The loss away in Algeria confirms the Egyptians’ elimination from the competition barely a month after being reinstated.
Ismaily SC have been eliminated from the CAF Champions League after a 3-2 loss away at CS Constantine of Algeria.
After being reinstated in the competition last month following CAF’s reversal of the decision to kick the club out of the tournament, Ismaily lost to the Algerian champions to end their quarter-final hopes.
It was the visitors however,who drew first blood in the 13th minute through Emad Hamdi before Nasreddine Zaalani equalised for the hosts in the first-half stoppage time to end the first half with scores level.
Namibian international striker Benson Shilongo fired Ismaily back in the lead five minutes after the start of the second half but a goal from Nassim Yattou leveled up scores in the fiercely contested encounter at Stade Mohamed Hamloui.
French-born Congolese forward Dylan Bahamboula delivered the final nail in the coffin that sent Ismaily packing nine minutes to full-time as he turned in Houcine Benyada’s well-timed cross.
Constantine are now almost assured of a place in the quarter-finals as their win on Saturday sees them go top of Group C with 10 points while Ismaily are bottom of the standings with only a point.
