LIVE: Al Ahly v FC Platinum | CAF Champions League | DEC 28th, 2019

Time: 14:00 ET | 21:00 Cairo Local Time

Al Ahly, who look irresistible in the Egyptian Premier League, are favourites to secure a second straight African Champions League win on Saturday at home to FC Platinum but they are taking nothing for granted against their unfancied opponents.

The Red Devils opened their group stage campaign with a disappointing 1-0 loss at Tunisia’s Etoile Sahel but quickly recovered to beat Sudanese giants Al-Hilal 2-1 at home.

Ahly have three points, on level with Al-Hilal and three behind Etoile who won two out of two games.

With Platinum lying at the bottom after losing their two matches, Ahly should find no difficulty brushing them aside in Saturday’s encounter at Cairo’s Al-Salam Stadium, which the team will use as their official home venue starting January.

But football director Sayed Abdel-Hafiz has warned against underestimating Platinum, who have never advanced past the group stage of Africa’s premier club competition.
