Egyptian club, Ismaily has been disqualified from this season CAF Champions League by the Confederation of African Football (CAF).

According to a statement on CAF official website on Wednesday evening the decision was reached after match officials reported that the club supporters disrupted the champions league game against Tunisian side, Club Africain.

The match was called off during extra-time after sections of the crowd threw water bottles and stones at an assistant referee and Africain players.

Ismaily’s last two results in Group C have subsequently been nullified with CS Constantinois sitting at the summit with six points from two matches while Club Africain and TP Mazembe occupy the second and third spots respectively without a point.

Club Africain were leading 2-1 and both teams and officials had to be protected as they left the pitch.

CAF confirmed the club could yet face further sanctions from its Disciplinary Board for the trouble, despite their severe punishment.

TP Mazembe, CS Constantinois and Club Africain will now battle in the group stage.
