Mohamed Ibrahim: Al Ahly will beat Étoile du Sahel home and away

Mohamed Ibrahim, assistant coach for , spoke on the upcoming semifinal matches between and Étoile du Sahel. 

While speaking on Extra Time, Ibrahim said he expects Al Ahly to beat Étoile du Sahel both home and away. He also added that the Tunisian side’s weaknesses outweigh their strengths.

“I predict that Al Ahly will win both home and away against Étoile du Sahel,” Ibrahim began.

“Étoile du Sahel have strong points from the right side where Hamdy Nagguez plays and the winger in front of him. They also have Hamza Lahmar who moves like Abdallah El Said, however, there is a large advantage for Abdallah in terms of level,” Ibrahim pointed out.

“The team as a whole depends on Lahmar, they don’t have options other than what comes from that right side from where they scored both goals against us,” Ibrahim continued.

“They also have many weak points. Al Ahly’s midfield and strikers are stronger than Étoile’s defense. In parts of the game, Étoile play for the offside trap, but Al Ahly will easily beat it,” Ibrahim reflected.

“Amr Marei is a good striker and we watched him in the league as such, but he didn’t threaten our goal except for his two goals that came from bad positioning from the defenders. Al Ahly’s defenders can easily stop him,” Ibrahim continued.

“The media nominates those players who pass well or who have a good game to be called up to the National Team, but Héctor Cúper follows all the players and sees who deserves to be called up and who will follow his directions,” Ibrahim mentioned.

Ahli Tripoli lost 2-0 on aggregate to ESS after Amr Marei scored two goals in the second leg. Al Ahly will play their first match against the Tunisian side on Sunday October 1.
