Ahly Seek Pirates Win

Al Ahly coach Mohamed Youssef says his team will be looking to win their last CAF Champions League Group A fixture against Orlando Pirates on Sunday afternoon, despite the fact that they have already advanced to the semi-finals.

"We are looking for a win against Pirates," Ahly coach Mohamed Youssef told Ahram Sports.

"A win will be important to secure our place as Group A leaders," added Youssef.

Earlier, Ahly midfielder Abdallah El-Said said the Red Devils will be looking for revenge when they take on Pirates, with the Soweto giants having handed the defending Champions League champions a 3-0 drubbing two months ago in El-Gouna.

Ahly, who arrived in South Africa on Thursday, currently top Group A with 10 points from the five games to date. Pirates and AC Leopards are second and third on seven points, with Bucs ahead on goal difference. Zamalek are fourth with four points after the five rounds of Group A matches.

In the other Group A match, Zamalek will take on Leopards at El Gouna on Sunday, and at the same time as the Pirates v Ahly clash.
