Mshishi breaks down this Saturdays clash against Al Ahly

A scintillating clash between two of Africa’s elite is set to take place in the Egyptian capital this weekend, with Masandawana finally looking to end their hunt for Africa’s most prestigious title. This fixture could prove to be a classic as the two teams lock horns for the third season in a row, Bafana Ba Style Maestro Themba Zwane is enthusiastic about his team’s positioning in group A as they lead their opponents by 3 points.

“As a team we are happy, we are on top of the log but we know for sure that the job is not done yet, but so far so good. On Saturday we are playing against Al-Ahly, it’s going to be a fight and as a team we are looking forward to giving it our all.”

Football enthusiasts will be tuned in to one of the biggest matches in the Champions League this weekend as the Tshwane giants play against the current title holders of the CAF Champions League Al-Ahly. Masandawana go into this match after a goalless draw in Cairo last weekend against Al-Merrikh, meanwhile the Red Devils were victorious in their domestic league encounter midweek, winning 4-0 as they head into the clash against the South African league champions.
