Spalletti: Al Ahly deserved to win
“Al Ahly are a good team, their performance was better and they deserved to win,” Spalletti said after the game.
“It was a difficult match and we failed to convert the chances that we created throughout the game,” he added.
Dzeko and Salah scored for Roma, while Antwi and Momen Zakaria netted for Al Ahly, as the first half ended 2-2. Walid Soliman gave Al Ahly the lead as he scored the third in the second half.
The Giallorossi then managed to level the scoreline making it 3-3 in the first minute of added time, before Ahmed El-Sheikh scored the winning goal for Al Ahly.
“Overall, it was a good experience. We benefited from giving several players the chance to feature as well as from facing a strong team like Al Ahly,” he concluded.
