Al-Ahly eyes CAF CL final when they meet Etoile

Sun, Oct. 22, 2017
CAIRO – 22 October 2017: Al-Ahly faces Tunisian club, Etoile du Sahel on Sunday night at CAF Champions League semi finals’ second leg at Borg al-Arab stadium in Alexandria. The game starts at 7:30 p.m. (CLT).

Al-Ahly players hope to win this match in order to qualify to the finals as the team lost the first leg in Tunisia (2-1). Around 60,000 fans are waiting to support Al-Ahly in this game.

Al-Ahly’s coach, Hossam al-Badry, depends on a massive attacking line of Moamen Zakaria, Saleh Gomaa, Walid Azzaro and Junior Ajayi, while Etoile du Sahel depends on their Egyptian striker Amr Marei.

Al-Ahly enters the game without two of their veteran players; Hossam Ashour who is injured, and Ahmed Fathy who is suspended.

“I trust my players and their desire to win and make our fans happy,” Badry told the press on Saturday.

The winner will meet Wydad Casablanca in the finals; Wydad Casablanca defeated USM Alger (3-1) in the semi-finals' second leg in Morocco after a goalless draw in Algeria in the first leg.
