Patrick M’Boma believes Ahly tie will be tricky for Horoya
Former Cameroon striker Patrick M’Boma has stated that the prospect of facing Al Ahly in the CAF Champions League will be ‘very complicated’ for Horoya.
The 2000 African player of the year has commented on the upcoming CAF Champions League quarter final between Guinea’s AC Horoya and Egyptian giants Al Ahly, stating that Horoya have their work cut out to get a result.
The 47 year old said “Very complicated, very complicated. I think everyone wanted to avoid Ahly, this mastodon of African football. But I think these are things you have to face when you want to progress and go far in the competition.”
“For Horoya the difficulty will of course be to go on a psychological disadvantage, but do we ever know that there is the experience of Victor Zvunka that will be useful to Guinean players. We know that it’s always better to play at home in the second leg, but starting well in a two legged tie can also be an interesting thing, and especially trying to take the lead against an experienced team will be the key to hope to reach the semi finals of the Champions League.”
Horoya take on Al Ahly tomorrow evening at 6PM Egyptian time in Conakry before the second leg eight days later in Cairo.
