Mamelodi Sundowns vs Al Ahly prediction
The inaugural African Football League will continue with a fixture between two giants of African football. South African team Mamelodi Sundowns will square up to Egyptian powerhouse,Al Ahly. Sundowns won their first ever game in the competition 2-0 away to Angolan side, Petro Atletico, but they could not capitalise on that result in the return leg which ended goalless.
Before the start of the tournament, the South African team was touted as one of the favourites, and their performance is proving that assertion. While they had it relatively easy against the Angolans, the Egyptians will pose a bigger challenge. Although the South Africans have the better of their Egyptian opponents in their recent meetings in the Champions League.
Sundowns will be looking to take inspiration from their recent results against their hosts and also leverage their form to get past the Egyptians.
However, the Egyptians are tough customers and they will not be fazed by the vociferous fans of the South Africans.Al Ahly are giants of the game both domestically and on the continent, and they will be actively seeking revenge against the South Africans.
Going by the prowess of both teams and their current form, this game is expected to be a closely contested match with both sides parading the best defensive players in the tournament.
With that, chances in this match will be few and far between, and we expect a low scoring affair. Therefore, we reckon that this match will produce less than three total goals Liverpool are primed as our main Al Ahly vs Mamelodi Sundowns prediction.
