CAIRO - 8 May 2020: Al Ahly Senegalese striker, Aliou Badji, states that he hopes to face arch-rivals, Zamalek, at CAF Champions League final.
"I wish to face Zamalek at CAF Champions League final. We have more talented players and we will fight to win the title." The striker said.
Badji seeks revenge against Zamalek who won the Egyptian Super Cup title in February after defeating Al Ahly 4-3 on penalties.
Badji and Mohamed Hany missed two penalties to grant Zamalek the title.
"I used to shoot to the goalkeeper's left side but I changed my mind in the game. I was disappointed as I was close to making history." Badji added.
Al Ahly reached CAF Champions League semi-finals after defeating South African giants Mamelodi Sundowns and they will meet Morocco's Wydad Casablanca.
On the other hand, Zamalek defeated the defending champions, Esperance, to reach the semi-finals and they will face Morocco's Raja Casablanca.
