Mosimane, whose side are the reigning champions of the competition, face a must-win situation where they have to overcome his Sudanese opponents if they are to qualify for the next round of the tournament, and avoid the possible embarrassment of being bundled out in the group stages.

Speaking to Al Ahly’s official website, Mosimane outlined his plan for this Saturday’s all-important encounter.

“We aim to qualify to the next round by achieving an important victory over Al Merrikh SC. Al Ahly will travel to Sudan focusing only on putting on a solid performance,” Mosimane told Al Ahly’s official website.

“Defeating Al Merrikh SC will allow us to achieve many goals such as, qualifying to the next round, keeping our hopes in being the group leaders as we will face Simba SC in the last fixture, and sending a message to all the other teams that we are always capable of winning away from home.”

Meanwhile, Mosimane has backed his side to finish the group strong, after a shaky start to their defence of the continental showpiece and is looking to finish their group as winners.

“Our upcoming two games against Al Merrikh and Simba are very important in our journey in the CAF Champions League. First of all, we have to qualify and secondly, we want to be the group leaders; it is Al Ahly’s norm to be leaders. 

“It’s not necessary to start the group stage in the best possible manner; however, we have to end the group stage in the optimal way possible. 

“Finally, the group stage phase in the CAF Champions League is like a marathon. The most important thing is to end it in the best possible way and that is what we are seeking for in the remaining two games.”
