Ahly coach Mohamed Youssef believes playing attacking football alongside determination will be key factors for his team to win Saturday's clash against Ahly Benghazi.

The Egyptian team will host its Libyan counterpart in the second leg of the CAF Champions League round of 16.

Ahly will be in a must-win situation if they are to successfully continue their African campaign.

"We have no other choice but to win the match," Youssef told Ahly's official website on Tuesday.

"In the first leg we had to tighten our defence to return with a positive result, but we were not lucky enough to achieve that target.

"This time playing attacking football will be our weapon besides the players' determination and concentration to proceed in the tournament," the rookie coach added.

Winning Saturday's match will renew the hope of title holders Ahly to remain in the competition for their ninth African Champions League title.
