Ahly manager Housam ElBadry expressed his delight to see his team reach the Champions League final, and hoped to win the trophy in Tunis. He added "Ahly is a great team and we have a lot of experienced players. We are used to these big finals and will do our best to win the title. We want to win for the sake of our fans who sacrificed a lot for their team".
Regarding the match in the light of the first leg result El Badry said "we lost nothing yet. Both teams have the same chance as only one half ended, and we will try to make for the first leg result. We worked on our striking area as we missed many chances in the first leg via Abou Treka, Gedo and El Said. Maybe that was a good point as we need to be positive and not feel rlaxed".
Talking about the missing players he said "both teams have some absentees and this may force us to change our tactics". The 52 years old manager said that the stakes are high for his team who wants to play in the FIFA Club World cup for the fourth time besides winning their seventh Champions League title to dedicate it for their fans who lost their lives defending the Reds castle.
