“Both teams will fight for the three points. We want to win the game and take a step towards reaching the next round as group leaders if we managed to defeat Simba SC at home in the last round.” Mosimane said in the pre-match press conference.
Al Ahly are second in the group, three points behind Simba SC, and the two teams will face off in the last game of the group stage.
Al Ahly hope to get the three points to secure their qualification to the quarter-finals in their journey to defend the African title.
The game starts on 3:00 pm.
