De Sa: Al Ahly Never Score A Lot

Former Orlando Pirates and current Ajax Cape Town head coach, Roger de Sa, has indicated that Al Ahly are a clinical side and tend to focus their attention on not conceding goals.

The Buccaneers face Al Ahly in the first leg of their semi-final clash in the CAF Confederation Cup on Saturday at the Orlando Stadium.

De Sa coached the Buccaneers to the finals of the CAF Champions League in 2013, before losing to Al Ahly. He indicated that the Egyptian giants tend to be quite conservative in their approach and concentrate on not conceding goals rather than trying to score a lot of goals.

 “A team like Al Ahly will never score a lot of goals. They are always inclined to take a 1-0 or a 0-0. They are clinical,” De Sa told Soccer Laduma.

”It is how they play. The good thing about playing against them is that they open up once you score a goal against them.”

“It is what happened when I played them with Pirates. We scored early and they opened up. I remember it was then a lot easier for us. But if the game is tight, it becomes very hard,” he added.
