Familiar Face For Pitso In CAF Semis: Should He Be Worried?

Pitso Mosimane will have a familiar face as the man in the middle for Al Ahly’s CAF Champions League clash against Esperance after the referee for the highly-anticipated encounter was revealed.

Mosimane’s side face off against their Tunisian counterparts in just under two weeks time as both sides look to secure their passage to the Champions League final.

And now (CAF) have announced that South African referee Victor Gomes will officiate the first leg match, which takes place at the Estadio Olímpico de Radès on 19 June.

Of course Mosimane will know all about the no-nonsense Gomes with the two having clashed on numerous occasions during Mosimane’s time as Mamelodi Sundowns coach.

The 38-year-old Gomes has overseen 30 matches where Mosimane has been head coach and in line with his reputation, has handed out in the region of 50 yellow cards during that time, while he has flashed his red card on six occasions – meaning that Mosimane’s side by no means hold the upper hand.

Interestingly though, Mosimane has often been on the winning side when Gomes has been in charge,  winning 13 of the 30 matches, while nine have ended in a draw and he suffered defeat on eight occasions.

Gomes, is no stranger to high-profile games as he was also the man in the middle for last season’s CAF Super Cup final between Zamalek and Esperance.
