CAIRO –16 February 2018: Al Hany Soliman, Ittihad Alexandria's goalkeeper, trusts his team ability to achieve a good result on Saturday when they meet Saudi's Al Hilal in the first leg of Zayed's Cup quarter final.

It's expected that Ittihad will face Al Hilal's powerful squad and the Saudi passionate fans on Saturday at 06:30 p.m. at Prince Faisal bin Fahd Stadium.

"Al Hilal is a big club and they have amazing players but in football there is no big and small club; we must give everything," Al Hany Soliman told the press before the game.

"We will not be affected by the power of the fans, but it will be a motivation for us. The football player likes to play in front of huge fans and this helps him to innovate," Soliman added.

Al-Ittihad Alexandria became the only Egyptian team at the tournament after Al-Ahly, Zamalek and Ismaily were knocked out of the competition from round of 16.

Al-Ittihad has had an amazing run at the tournament and they knocked out CAF Champions League winners, Espérance, at round of 32 before knocking out Egyptian League leaders, Zamalek, at the second round.

The champion will win $6 million, while the runners-up will win $2.5 million.
