After losing their first game of the season against Ittihad of Alexandria in the Egyptian Premier League game in Cairo on Sunday, Ahly coach Patrice Carteron has expressed his confidence about the players' ability to return to winning ways.

"I am confident of the players' ability to overcome this defeat and perform well in the coming games," Carteron was quoted as saying on the club's official website.

"The players did their best during the game, but they failed to make use of the chances to score," he added.

"I lived a very bad day as I hoped to overcome the defeat."   

The Cairo giants, who will be looking to protect a 2-0 advantage when they face Algeria's ES Setif in the second leg of the African Champions League semi-final on 23 October, lie ninth on the table with 11 points, six behind Zamalek, who played two matches more.
