Al Ahly SC seeks to bank on Zesco and push for the second position in the Group B table. This evening Al Ahly play against Zesco United in Cairo Egypt. Zesco visit to Egypt is marked for a big story. The determined Egyptian giant will have it tough with Zesco United who have put in extra preparation for this game.
“The mood in camp is high as we await the match this evening which of course is a must win for us. Trust me it won’t be an easy game because even Ahly are banking on this game.” Zesco United Chief Executive Officer Justin Mumba told www.zescounited.com
The Egyptian side Al Ahly had a poor start in the group stage with a clean 3:2 loss to Zesco United at Levy Mwanawasa. This was followed by another loss to ASEC Mimosas and a draw at home with Wydad Casablanca and a win as they visited Morocco.
The above has effectively put Al Ahly SC seating on the third place of the Group Stage with only two games remaining. Ahly needs to win the Zesco game in order to have chances to move forward to the next stage.
Zesco United today reported on their official web channel as ‘Zesco ready and fit for Ahly.’
“…But we are here to play and the players will play to the best of their capability. I know that they have worked so hard this year and they are close to achieving their dream of reaching the finals,” Mumba continued to say.
