The defending champions opened their latest CAFCL campaign with a comfortable 3-0 win over Al Merreikh of Sudan.

They will now face Tanzanian Premier League champions Simba Sports Club on Tuesday, and striker Meddie Kagere has sent a warning to the Egyptian giants.

"If I get a chance to play in the match on Tuesday and we create chances even if they are few as they were last time, I am confident of giving our fans joy by scoring again," Kagere told Sokalabongo.

"We want to win again at home and we will strive to do it.

"You know we are going to play against the best team here in Africa in all areas so we are going to meet enough competition from them which will contribute to a few scoring chances being created but if I meet one of the few chances, I will make sure I use it."

Kagere scored his side's only goal when the two clubs met in the 2019 edition of the tournament, leading Simba to a 1-0 home victory after Al Ahly had crushed them 5-0 in Egypt.

This season, Simba started the group stage with a 1-0 win over AS Vita, putting them level on points with Al Ahly.

"We have managed to win away from home (beating AS Vita 1-0), and it was a good start for us because we scored after creating several chances and it could have been bad had we not won the game, and the three points are good for us," he added.

"If we manage to play well and beat Al Ahly, we will simply set ourselves to finish at a very good position which will guarantee us a qualification berth in the quarter-finals and that is our target for this season."
