The Red Eagles are doing fantastic lately since they parted ways with their coach; Al Ahly have now won three and drawn once in the last four matches. It’s a cup tie and will not be taken lightly.
They secured the quarter-finals ticket after a narrow (1-0) win against Elmasry Belsalom; Ahmed Abdelkader scored the only goal in that encounter.
Al Ahly must not keep their eggs in a basket as the race for the premier league this season will be intense, and they must now focus on this cup to at least lay their hands on silverware.
The visitors have been looking for their major trophy since they were formed; their notable achievement has been a runner-up in the Egyptian cup in the 2019 season and the 2020 CAF confederation cup finals defeat. They have recruited pretty well this season which is why they are second on the log.
Just like Al Ahly, Ahmed Samy’s goal in the 34th minute was enough to secure them the ticket to the semifinals.
Pyramids have a slight edge over Al Ahly, having recorded two victories in the last two encounters in this competition. However, the home side are more focused on claiming the cup this season, which will make it more difficult this time.
