Akram Tawfiq scored Al-Ahly’s fourth goal against Al-Ittihad of Alexandria
Al-Ittihad of Alexandria will host the Al-Ahly team on Thursday evening as part of the 20th round of the League competition.
Ibrahim Hassan told FilGoal.com: “Facing Al-Ahly is inherently difficult due to the strength of the red team.”
He revealed, “But the match made it more difficult after Al-Ahly’s latest results.”
Al-Ahly had failed to win the last two matches, as they tied against El-Gouna and lost afterwards from Ghazl El-Mahalla.
Ibrahim Hassan added, “We are ready to meet Al-Ahly and we have players whose abilities we trust and are waiting for a good match.”
Speaking about the extent of Razzak Cisse’s injury, he revealed, “We are trying to join the meeting, as he is training carefully due to his injury.”
He concluded his remarks, “We have confidence in Egyptian arbitration and the pressure that is exerted on it. We will not focus on that and focus on the stadium only.”
Al-Ittihad is in fifth place with 29 points from 19 matches, while Al-Ahly is second with 37 points, with two games less.
