Thursday 21/September/2017 - 05:21 PM
The Cairo giants Ahly landed in Tunisia earlier Thursday ahead of their must-win showdown against the Esperance Sportive de Tunis in Rades on Saturday in the last eight round، to compete for the first CAF Champions League title since 2013.
The quarter-final second-leg match will take place at the Stade Olympique de Radès in the Tunisian city، it is set to kick-off at 8:00 PM (Cairo Time).
Under coach Hossam El-Badry، the Red Devils، who saw a frustrating 2-2 home draw last Sunday، Ahly will hold their first training session on the opponent's soil this evening.
After they were morale boosted by huge fan attendance and intense cheering in their final training session before departure، Ahly seem to aim nothing but a satisfying performance and a likely positive two-match aggregate.
The Tunisian giants also have won this tournament twice and they are looking to go all the way، and win it for the third time.
Referee Sidi Alioum، who hails from Cameroon، will officiate the match between Esperance and Al Ahly on Saturday.
