ES Setif defender Miloud Rebiai said on Monday that his side is ready for Tuesday's anticipated clash against Ahly in the first leg of the CAF Champions League semis in Cairo, stressing the game will be very tough for both teams.
"We are ready for Ahly and our preparations were ideal for this clash," Rebiai told Algerian channel El-Heddaf on Monday.
"Players and the team's technical staff are fully concentrated in Tuesday clash."
"I think it will be the same case for Ahly because we are a strong team.''
The second leg between ES Setif and Ahly will take place in Algeria on 23 October.
The Algerian side booked a last-four berth after stunning defending champions Wydad de Casablanca 1-0 on aggregate in the quarter finals.
