Al Ahly Captain: We Will Fight

Al Ahly captain, Emad Meteb, says they need to grab an early goal and keep a clean sheet against Orlando Pirates.

The Buccaneers secured a 1-0 win over the Egyptian side in the first leg at Orlando Stadium thanks to a strike from Thamsanqa Gabuza. 

However, the Egyptian striker says Al Ahly are determined to secure the win, which will take them to the CAF Confederation Cup final. 

"The Orlando match is an important and difficult one. We will fight to recover the loss in the first leg to reach the final," Meteb said in a press conference.

"We overcame a similar situation before. We are fully concentrated now on keeping a clean sheet and scoring early," the veteran international striker added.

Al Ahly Squad for Confederation Cup semi-final:
 
Goalkeepers: Sherif Ekramy, Ahmed Adel, Mosaad Awad.
 
Defenders: Ahmed Fathi, Mohamed Naguib, Saad Samir, Sherif Hazem, Mohamed Hany, Hussein El Sayed, Sabry Rahil, Bassem Ali.
 
Midfielders: Momen Zakaria, Abdallah El-Said, Hossam Ashour, Saleh Gomaa, Ramadan Sobhy.
 
Forwards: Malick Evouna, John Antwi, Emad Meteb, Amr Gamal, Ahmed Abdel Zaher.
