Ahly are aware of their important mission scheduled for Saturday when they will be hosted by Township Rollers in Botswana's capital Gaborone, in the fourth round of the CAF Champions' League group stage.

"The team players are in great focus insisting to appear strong against Township," explained assistant coach Mohamed Youssif on the club's website Wednesday.

"We know our opponents well, especially after our convincing 3-0 victory last week in Alexandria," he said.

Ahly recovered from a poor start to their African Champions League group stage campaign with their latest performance, giving new coach Patrice Carteron a winning start.

"They will play differently since the match will take place on their home soil, and they will definitely aim to win," Youssif added.

"All players are ready technically and psychologically," he said.

Record holders Ahly, who are bidding for their ninth title, moved up to second place in Group A with four points, three behind leaders Esperance. Kampala and Township Rollers have three points each.
