CAIRO-19 June 2021: Al Ahly’s head coach, Pitso Mosimane, decided to keep Mohamed Magdy Afsha on the bench against Esperance.

The South African manager will start the game with a 4-3-3 formation as Amr El Soulia, Hamdy Fathy and Aliou Dieng will start in the midfield.

Al Ahly’s starting line-up for the game consists of: Mohamed El Shenawy, Akram Tawfik, Badr Benoun, Ayman Ashraf, Ali Maaloul, El Soulia, Dieng, Hamdy, Salah Mohsen, Mohamed Sherif and Taher Mohamed Taher.

It is clear that Salah and Sherif will be running behind the Tunisian defense, trying to score a goal that gives Al Ahly an advantage ahead of the second leg in Cairo.

CAF Champions League title-holders Al Ahly face Tunisian giants Esperance in the first leg of the CAF Champions League semi-finals at Hammadi Agrabi Stadium in Rades.

Al Ahly are three matches away from securing the prestigious title for the second season in a row and achieving a positive result in Tunisia is the beginning for Pitso Moimane’s men.

On the other hand, Esperance, who reached the semi-final stage after a heroic comeback against Algeria’s CR Belouizdad, aim to repeat the amazing achievement of 2018 when they defeated the Red Devils 3-0, winning the CAF Champions League title.

The game starts at 6:00 PM.
