Ahly coach Carlos Garrido expressed confidence after his side defeated Rwanda's APR 2-0 Saturday in the second leg of the African Champions League Round 32.
"I am happy with the victory and satisfied we made to the last 16. The Rwandan team was defensive and that made the scoring harder," the Spaniard told the club's official website.
After a 2-0 first-leg victory in Kigali, the Egyptians eased up to the last 16 in their bid for a ninth trophy, thanks to two goals scored by Moemen Zakareya.
"Zakareya's performance is excellent and he fits the team perfectly. It's no surprise for me to see him score twice as I am familiar with his outstanding appearance in the trainings," Garrido stated.
"I have more than 16 ready players in my squad and I pick the most ready players. All players must have opportunities," he added.
Ahly are playing Ismaily Wednseday in the Egyptian Premier League. They are currently third in the table with 39 points from 20 games, nine fewer than leaders Zamalek who played one game more.
"The Ismaily game is very important," Garrido affirmed.
