Al Ahly vs Medeama SC prediction

Defending champions Al Ahly kick off the defence of their CAF Champions League title this Saturday evening when they welcome Ghanaian debutants Medeama to the Al-Salam Stadium in Cairo. Al Ahly swept aside all competition last season to get crowned for a record time 11th time and will be looking to extend that record when the action begins. They have had a strong start to the Egyptian league with 4 straight wins to begin the season before drawing 1-1 with El Gouna last time out just before the international break. Former Austria coach Marcel Koller who is coaching them now will be hoping they can replicate their domestic form in this competition.

Ghanaian outfit Medeama are coming in as massive underdogs here as they are making their first apperance at the group stage of the CAF Champions League. The Yellow and Mauves have overcome all odds to get to this stage, going through four tough matches in two qualifying rounds against Nigerian side Remo Stars and Guinea’s Horoya AC. Their ticket to Group D has placed them alongside Al Ahly, Algeria’s CR Belouizdad, and Young Africans from Tanzania. This is definitely a baptism of fire for them but coach Augustine Evans believes they can still continue their fairy-tale run in this competition

Al Ahly is expected to make light work of the newcomers Medeama. However, while it may appear like a straightforward easy fixture, we have seen enough from Medeama to believe they can bring in their unrelenting spirit and tenacity in this opening fixture. They have been particularly great at the back. Al Ahly are also a good defensive team. As a result, we expect a game with limited scoring opportunities and great defence which is why we are picking Under 2.5 Goals as our first Al Ahly vs Medeama prediction here.

Main tip: Under 2.5 Goals

Our Al Ahly vs Medeama SC predictions

According to the statistics and the odds of the bookmakers, we suggest the following tips:

Prediction 1: Under 2.5 Goals

Al Ahly have been solid in their backyard particularly defensively. They have kept three clean sheets in their last 5 home games across all competitions.

Medeama on their part have struggled in front of goal lately. They have failed to score in their last two games. However, their defense has also been relatively solid. Despite losing these last two games, they only allowed 1 goal in both games.

We expect a tight encounter here and we are backing this game to have no more than two total goals scored with great odds for this option offered at 1Win

Prediction 3: BTTS NO

Both teams have struggled upfront to generate quality in their last 5 matches. The home side have scored 5 goals while the visitors have scored 4 in this timeframe.

Only 1 of Medeama’s last 5 matches has witnessed both teams scoring. For Al Ahly, it’s just 2 in their last 7 matches overall.

This trend indicates that this game is likely to be a slugfest that could either see these teams fail to hit the back of the net or perhaps have the odd goal or two from one side. As such, we are backing the BTTS No option as our final Al Ahly vs Medeama SC prediction for this clash
