Cape Town – Former
Orlando Pirates midfielder Daine Klate believes the club has what it takes to
beat Al-Ahly in Egypt.
KickOff, Klate deems that with Zamalek dominating the Egyptian soccer scene it
is the perfect opportunity for Pirates hand Al Ahly a defeat.
“Al-Ahly have changed a bit since Pirates played them two
years ago with some players retiring and at the moment Zamalek is dominating
the [Egyptian League so this is a perfect opportunity for Pirates,” says Klate.
“They are going there with a 1-0 lead and they kept a clean
sheet at home, so it is an advantage for Pirates.
"The only thing is Al-Ahly are
tactically very disciplined and if Pirates can match them in terms of tactical
discipline, I think they stand a very, very good chance [of winning].
“But they must not be naïve and they must stick to the game
plan; keep the shape and learn from the past,” he says.
Pirates take on Al
Ahly in a CAF Confederation Cup encounter on Sunday, October 4.
