Cape Town - Ahead of their Champions League return leg to South Africa's Bidvest Wits this coming weekend, Al Ahly coach Hossam El-Badry expects a tough encounter.

The Red Devils will head to Johannesburg to renew their rivalry against the Clever Boys on Sunday, 19 March.

Ahly bagged a 1-0 win courtesy of an Ahmed Hegazy goal in the first-leg, sealing an important win for his team to give them a slight advantage.

However, the coach wished they had scored more goals to secure a comfortable advantage for the Red Devils.

“I wish we scored more than one goal against Bidvest Wits, but we were facing a special team, they were organized and had good physical strength,” El-Badry told 9090 radio station.

“We should all not forget that last year’s champion in this tournament was from South Africa. This gives us a good hint on how strong football is there.”

On the other hand, El-Badry remained upbeat that they can stun Gavin Hunt's men in their backyard.

“What the media said about me scolding the players after the first match is deceptive. On the contrary, I thanked all players after the game for their good performance and efforts,” adds the mentor.

“We’re waiting for the results of their medical scans to know the extent of their injuries; however, we do have ready substitutes that can fill their places.

“I will take advantage of the opponent’s offensive rush.”
