Match Reaction – Ahly v Esperance
Hossam El Badry (Ahly manager)
We can still win the title in Tunisia and that’s not something impossible for Al Ahly. This is not a bad result, but I see it leaves the tie balanced and both teams are still in with a chance. We were unlucky throughout the game especially with the chances that fell to Mohamed Abou Treka. We will try to amend our mistakes for the return leg.
Nabil Maaloul (Esperance manager)
The return leg won’t be easy for Esperance as some may predict despite the positive result we achieved today. Our team will have to deal with injuries and suspensions. Al Ahly was the better side today and their strike-force was sharp but our backline under immense pressure. There is another half for the final in Tunis and both teams still have chances to win.
