Pitso sends clear message to ES Setif

African Football

Al Ahly head coach Pitso Mosimane says they heading to Algeria targeting a win against a 'strong' ES Setif on Saturday night.

The Red Devils have one foot in the CAF Champions League after thrashing the Algerian giants 4-0 in the first leg seven days ago in Cairo.

Mosimane, however, is not thinking about last week's result and is aiming to secure a win to cement their spot in the final.

“We are not thinking about the first leg game anymore, we’ll play as if we had a draw in Cairo,” Mosimane said, according to KingFut.

“There have been so many comeback stories in football, that’s why we will be fully focused during the game.

“Setif is a strong team but we came here to win. It will be a difficult game but we will play for victory.”

Al Ahly's only visit to the Stade du 8 Mai 1945 was in the semi-finals of the 2018 edition and while they suffered a 2-1 defeat, they won the tie 3-2 on aggregate.
