Mosimane ready for difficult task
“Just like Al-Hilal game, the match against Mamelodi Sundowns will be difficult, but in better conditions,” Al Ahly head coach Pitso Mosimane said.
“Tomorrow’s game is important, just like the other group stage games, and we will be aiming for victory. Sundowns have improved a lot, they have a very good coach and their squad is now stronger.
“They might be motivated to beat us because we won last year’s encounter, but we are ready for the challenge Mamelodi Sundowns will bring.
“I can’t talk about Badr Benoun’s condition, I am not a doctor, but Aubameyang had the same issue and he’s now playing and scoring goals for Barcelona.
“El-Shennawy’s return added more strength to the team, and Percy Tau is not 100% ready but he might play for a few minutes.”
