Horoya’s Khadim N’Diaye optimistic ahead of return leg clash against Al Ahly
Horoya AC and Senegal goalkeeper Khadim N’Diaye has argued that Al Ahly will be under more pressure when the two sides meet for a second time in the return leg of the CAF Champions League quarterfinal in Cairo.
Al Ahly drew 0-0 in the first leg of the away at Horoya in Conakry, Guinea, with neither side creating much in the way of clear chances. However the Red Devils were close in two occasions in the second half which were squandered by Salah Mohsen.
N’Diaye, who featured for Senegal in the 2018 World Cup in Russia, believes that Horoya stand a chance in getting the job done in Egypt. The 33-year-old goalkeeper had missed the first leg due to accumulation of yellow cards.
“I think we will be okay because we prepared very well. At home we had to score at least one goal but we couldn’t do it,” N’Diaye told Horoya’s official website.
“We approach the second leg without pressure and with serenity. It is Al Ahly who have the pressure since they must score. I trust my team and I believe in the victory. In any case the squad is doing well and God willing we will overcome them.”
It is worth noting that the winner between Al Ahly and Horoya will face the winner between Wydad Casablanca and ES Setif, in which the latter hold a 1-0 first leg advantage they achieved in Algeria.
