Ahly coach Mosimane plans to be aggressive against ES Setif in Algeria

Ahram Online , Friday 13 May 2022

Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane said on Friday that his team will be looking to "score and win" in the "difficult" game against ES Setif in the second leg of the CAF Champions League semifinal in Algeria on Saturday despite the big 4-0 win in the first leg last weekend in Cairo.

“ES Setif is a big team and we arrived to Algeria to win and score as the game is expected to be difficult,” Mosimane told a pre-game press conference.

The Cairo giants smashed 10-man ES Setif of Algeria 4-0 in Cairo on Saturday, getting them that much closer to the prestigious tournament’s final for a record-extending 15th time.

Ahly, who are favoured to qualify for their third consecutive CL final and 11th African title, seek to become the first team to win a hat-trick of straight CL crowns.

“We know that ES Setif will make use of the home and fans attendance, but we will play to score and return to Cairo with a ticket to the final,” the South African coach added.
