El-Badry determined to beat KCCA after defeat to Espérance
As the Red Devils failed to grab a victory in any of their last three official games, their coach is hoping they will find enough will to beat a tough Kampala side.
“They have also been following us,” said El-Badry, “I also watched Uganda national team against Egypt [1-0 in Kampala] and have to say Uganda and KCCA football has improved.
“But our main target tomorrow is to win because we drew our first match.
“I hope for me and my players to have luck with officiating because in the first match things didn’t go our way.”
On the other hand, Kampala’s boss Mike Mutebi was full of praise for Al Ahly, yet he believed the ambition of his troops can be the difference maker in the fixture.
Kampala who will host Al Ahly in Uganda on Tuesday afternoon lost their first group game away against Township Rollers 1-0.
“For us it’s a privilege to play against the best club in Africa,” said Mutebi of the eight-time African champions. “It’s the only way to gauge our progress. “We respect Al Ahly as a dominant force and for all they’ve achieved.
“But as an emerging force we have the desire to play against the best.
“We have the youngest team on the continent with the average age of 21 and we have given these boys responsibility.
“What I can assure you is that we shall go and play our way. I don’t mind if we won 4-3 but what we want is to play good, entertaining football and both sides are capable of that.”
