Al Ahly’s opponents Zesco United have said they are ready for their match with the Red Devils.

Al Ahly take on Zambian side Zesco United in their first match in Group A of the CAF Champions League on Saturday.

Zesco head coach George Lwandamina hinted that his side were not fazed by the African giants. He told Zesco United’s website, “At sometime they [Al Ahly] were like Zesco. No one started as champions. Everyone starts from somewhere.”

He added, “So if we say they are champions and we quit, then there won’t be any football. We have to work as well and we don’t have limitations. They started from somewhere and Zesco is starting from somewhere.”

Al Ahly announced their squad list for the game earlier in the week. Most notably striker Malick Evouna is out of the squad after being sidelined with an ankle injury.

Zesco will also be without their strikers Idris Mbombo, who was ruled out after a back injury and Jesse Were who is suspended after picking up two yellow cards.

Were exclusively told that his side were confident in the build up to this match.
