Al Ahly’s football first team concluded their preparations for Saturday’s match against Sudan’s Al Merrikh SC.
The Red Eagles performed a tactical session, which saw various tactical and fitness drills that Pitso Mosimane, Al Ahly’s head coach, was keen to implement.
Al Ahly are set to face Sudan’s Al Merrikh SC at Al Hilal Stadium on April 3 at 3:00 PM in the fifth fixture of the CAF Champions League group stage.
The Red Eagles currently sit in second place, three points behind Tanzania’s Simba SC, having a total of seven points in four games.
Pitso Mosimane, Al Ahly’s head coach, believes that Al Ahly players must fight to defeat Al Merrikh SC on Saturday and get the three points, adding that he expects an attacking game between the two teams.
“It will be a difficult game. Every team has two games remaining and these points will decide the two teams that will reach the quarter-finals.”
“Both teams will fight for the three points. We want to win the game and take a step towards reaching the next round as group leaders if we managed to defeat Simba SC at home in the last round.”
