Zanaco is tough:Al Ahly coach

Al Ahly head coach Hossam El Badry believes Zanaco will give them a run of their own money when the two sides meet at CAF Champions League clash in a Group D clash at the Borg El Arab Stadium in Alexandria. 

Record champions, Ahly are targeting a positive start in their quest to regain the title they last won in 2013. Since then, the Red Devils exited the premier continental club championship at the 1/8th round in 2014 and 2015. The eight-time winners also failed to go past the group stage of the CAF Champions League last year.

-It's not over until it's over. We've done a good job till now, but have won nothing yet. All what's on my mind now is the CAF Champions League game against Zanaco, he told Cafonline.

Good side

-They  are a very good side. I've watched some games of them and I know they are going to be a tough opponent to play against. At this level all teams are good, and everyone wants to qualify to the next stage, he added.
