CAF Champions League: Egypt’s Al Ahly worry of Ghananian Medeama


Al Ahly’s coach, Marcel Kohler, is emphasizing the importance of focus and intelligence as his team embarks on their group phase journey in the TotalEnergies CAF Champions League. The Egyptians first challenge awaits on Saturday against the unfamiliar Medeama.

In his inaugural group phase match this season, the Swiss trainer is cautioning against underestimating the Ghanaian side, Medeama, even in the absence of extensive information.

Despite Al Ahly’s recent successes under Kohler’s guidance, he recognizes that triumphing over Medeama is crucial for gaining early momentum before facing formidable opponents like Belouizdad in Group D.

Medeama, as relatively unknown African opponents, are determined to surprise more renowned teams. This adds an element of danger to Saturday’s opener if Al Ahly doesn’t approach the match with full concentration.

Kohler stressed the need for the players to be serious right from the start, considering the high motivation of an away-playing opponent in this competition.

Complicating matters further, key players are absent due to recent international duties, and navigating through disruptive scheduling poses an additional test.

However, Kohler believes that by leveraging the enthusiastic home support, Al Ahly can strategically counter any surprises that Medeama might spring.

Successfully overcoming various challenges in the opening weekend could apply early pressure on Medeama while reinforcing Al Ahly’s status as favorites to defend the crown they secured last season.
