Ahly will be eyeing a repeat of the 2006 and 2012 CAF Champions League finals when they eventually emerged winners following a 1-1 first-leg home draw as they visit Morocco’s Wydad Casablanca in the competition’s final on Saturday.

Ahly manager Hossam El-Badry says the presence of the home fans in the stands would be a source of pressure against Wydad and not his side ahead of the of both teams’ CAF Champions League final return-leg at Casablanca’s Mohamed V Stadium on Saturday.

“Wydad have a huge fan base, but the biggest fan base in Africa and the Arab World belongs to Ahly,” El-Badry said in the pre-match press conference.

“They will be a source of pressure against Wydad and not Ahly.

“As to the absence of their star Mohammed Ounajem, I don’t really think that his absence would make a big difference.”

Wydad star Ounajem will miss the match due to injury sustained during his side’s 1-1 draw with Ahly last week.

The Champions League winner qualifies for next month Club World Cup in the UAE.
