Al Ahly Boss: We Saw How Mazembe Got Knocked Out By AmaZulu

Al Ahly sporting director Sayed Abdelhafiz says you have to be careful in the CAF Champions League preliminary rounds or you'll end up like TP Mazembe.

Scroll through the gallery above to see action from Al Ahly's big win over USGN.

The Congolese will not be competing in the Champions Leeague group stages after failing to beat AmaZulu, who went through on the away goals rule.

Pitso Mosimane's charges, meanwhile, made sure of their spot after thrashing USGN 6-1 in Cairo on Saturday evening.

“It was very important to win today’s encounter, especially that we had around 12 players who were not available to play for several reasons. However, we were able to come out victorious and qualify to the next round," Abdelhafiz said after the game, according to the club's official website.

“You have to be fully focused when it comes to the preliminary rounds of the CAF Champions League due to the fact the teams might surprise you and come up with unexpected results.”

“For example, we saw how TP Mazembe of DR Congo were knocked out from the competition from AmaZulu of South Africa.”

“We will now shift our focus towards the Egyptian League, as we will not be playing in the CAF Champions League until next February.”\
