File - The first leg clash between Ismaily and Raja in Ismailia
CAIRO – 27 February 2020: Ismaily assistant coach, Adham El Selehdar, believes that his team should not count on their 1-0 victory over Raja Casablanca at the first leg of Arab Club Championship semi-final.
“Raja are a strong team and they will receive a massive support from their fans at the second leg. It will be a tough game.” El Selehdar told press on Thursday.
Ismaily achieved a 1-0 victory in Ismailia thanks to a goal from Ismaily Tunisian winger, Fakhreddine Ben Youssef.
El Selehdar added “ We aim to advance to the final from Morocco and continue our way towards achieving the title.”
Ismaily, known as the Brazilians, were knocked out of the competition last year against Raja in Morocco after the two legs ended with a 0-0 draw and the hosts won the tie on penalty shootouts.
The winner of the tie will face the winner between Al Ittihad Jeddah and Al Shabab at the final.
