Algerian football giants Belouizdad are gearing up for a monumental showdown as they brace themselves to face African powerhouse Al Ahly in the TotalEnergies CAF Champions League.

The highly anticipated Group D clash, initially postponed, is set to electrify the 5 July 1962 Olympic Stadium in Algiers on Friday.

Belouizdad’s manager, Marcus Paqueta, acknowledged the enormity of the challenge his team faces against the Egyptian titans. Addressing the press ahead of the clash, Paqueta emphasized the significance of securing points, especially given Belouizdad’s home advantage.

Despite recognizing the magnitude of the game, Paqueta stressed that the result alone wouldn’t dictate the fate of either team’s quarter-final aspirations.

With meticulous preparation both mentally and tactically, Paqueta instilled a winning mindset within his players, urging them to approach the game with unwavering determination.

He also called upon the passionate Belouizdad supporters to rally behind the team, providing the much-needed encouragement and motivation on the field.

Goalkeeper Alexis Gendouz echoed Paqueta’s sentiments, acknowledging the Herculean task ahead while expressing determination to secure victory and facilitate their qualification ambitions. However, the absence of key Al Ahly player Aliou Dieng due to injury serves as a glimmer of hope for Belouizdad, albeit they are fully aware of the formidable challenge posed by the reigning African champions.

As Belouizdad steel themselves for this titanic clash, Paqueta and his men are well aware that flawless focus and unwavering determination will be paramount if they are to overcome the formidable challenge presented by Al Ahly and keep their Champions League dreams alive.
