Al Ahly captain wary of Pirates

08 November 2013, 15:33

Cairo - Captain of Al Ahly Wael Gomaa has said his side will not underrate Orlando Pirates when both teams meet in the second leg of the 2013 CAF Champions League final.

The Egyptian side host the South African outfit on Sunday in Cairo.

With Pirates coming from behind to pull a 1-1 draw in the final minutes if the first leg, Gomaa said Pirates are a side to be wary of any time despite playing away.

"When Pirates play away from their ground, they play much better," Gomaa said on Supersport.com

"Their goal in the last minute will give us more courage to take the second game more aggressively and positively."

Striker Lennox Bacela will be a key player for Pirates but he said they have to be more clinical in front of goal in Cairo.

"We failed to convert our chances (at home) and it cannot be the same in Egypt," said Bacela, whose team's first and only triumph in the competition was 18 years ago.

"Ahly will be tough to break. They have the experience but I think we have the will, pace and skills to unlock any defence and cause problems.

"We believe we can get something out of Sunday's game. The nation must also believe we can do so. Both teams have 90 minutes to decide... we will see who is the best team at the end of the match."
