Libyan minnows Al-Ahli Tripoli caused a major upset when they secured the 2-2 draw which saw them qualify from Group B of the continent’s elite club competition ahead of five-time winners, Zamalek.

Irate fans reacted by ripping seats out of the stadium and hurling objects onto the pitch after full-time in what looked like a war zone. Scores were injured in the violence, but it is not yet known exactly how many, Sun writes.

Hosts Zamalek had looked to be going through after taking the lead in the 13th minute, but things turned awry when they were reduced to 10 men after Mahmoud Hamdi El Wensh was sent off for conceding a penalty in first-half stoppage time.

Al-Ahli celebrate their famous victory
Mohamed Al Ganodi equalised for Al-Ahli Tripoli from the spot before Vianney Madibe put them ahead with 20 minutes left.

Last year’s runners-up Zamalek set up a nervy finale when Moruf Yusuf equalised, but it wasn’t enough, sparking mayhem in the stadium.

Scores were injured in the carnage
Fans threw flares, homemade bombs and various other objects onto the field in scenes similar to the Port Said massacre in 2012, one of the darkest moments of African football.

Following their famous victory, Al-Ahli Tripoli joins Algerian side USM Alger in the semifinals of the lucrative competition. More photos below...
