Ahly’s Portuguese coach Manuel Jose insisted his team’s next match in the African Champions League against Moroccan side Wydad will be a tough test.

“A draw is not an option otherwise we will have to defeat Tunisian side Esperance 2-0 so we must play to win,” Jose was quoted as saying on the club’s official website.

Ahly remain third in Group B of the CAF Champions League with five points, one behind leading duo Wydad and Esperance and three ahead of bottom team Mouloudia Alger of Algeria.

“I studied the Moroccan team and I have a good technical strategy I will not reveal,” he added.

Jose said he expected Esperance to defeat Mouloudia in the next round of matches.
