Al Ahly vs Belouizdad prediction
An injury-time equalizer by Young Africans denied Al Ahly all three points on offer and threw a spanner in the works in Group D with the defending champs Al Ahly barely hanging on to the summit of the group by the skins of their teeth. The Egyptian giants have 4 points from their opening two matches and they are closely followed by Ghana’s Medeama and the visitors Belouizdada who are both tied on 3 points. Al Ahly have nevertheless been solid at their Al-Salam Stadium in Cairo in both the domestic league and in this competition and they will be looking to maintain this form here. Coach Marcel Koller was visibly disappointed with their capitulation in Tanzania and he will be looking for a response here.
Like the hosts, Algeria’s Belouizdad also suffered a late game collapse in their last group match as they conceded in the 94th minute to Medeama who completed a 2-1 comeback win on matchday 2 in front of their supporters to spark off wild celebrations. Belouizdad had kicked off the competition with a solid 3-0 home win over Young Africans from Tanzania and looked set to pick up a second straight win in the group when they took an early lead away at Medeama. The Reds have been perennial participants in this competition but they have yet to surpass their semifinal appearance back in the 1996 edition
This is a key game for both of these teams. Al Ahly will be keen to re-establish control of Group D with a solid win here while the visitors will look to make the most of the opportunity to also go top if they can upset the bookies with a win. Defence has been Al Ahly’s calling card at home as they showed with the clean sheet in the group opener against Medeama. We expect a closely contested game and a defensive mindset from both teams. With this in mind, we feel there is value in going for Under 2.5 Goals as our initial Al Ahly vs Belouizdad prediction here.
