The Brazilians started brightly and almost had the lead when they hit the woodwork from a corner, but broke the deadlock when Raphael Veiga ran onto a clever through ball to slot home after 39 minutes.

Dudu made it two shortly after the restart when he took the ball across most of the opposition half before striking the ball from an acute well with such power that the ‘keeper stood no chance.

Al Ahly though they had pulled one back on 72 minutes when Weverton failed to hold onto a shot which Mohamed Sherif tapped in, only to see the goal ruled out for offside.

Tensions boiled over with 10 minutes remaining when Ayman Ashraf was sent off for a wild tackle.

The game played out at the Al-Nahyan Stadium, in Abu Dhabi, where the tournament is being hosted as a mid-season event.
