Gambia/Morocco: Real Plots Upset On Moroccan Club Today

Making a return after more than a decade of absence, Alagie Sarr and charges are plotting an upset on host FUS Rabat of Morocco in today's Caf Champions League fixture.

The Gambian 2012 league champions will plan to wrench hearts FUS Rabat fans in the North African country's administrative capital, Rabat when the two sides faceoff today.

Coach Alagie Sarr opts to attack forty percent but on a minimal scale putting more emphasis on having to tighten up his back-four to prevent the Moroccan capital club's attack ravaging defense from coming any closer to the Gambia outfit's goalmouth.

At press conference held on Tuesday noon, the ex-Gambian player turned coach, Sarr gave hint of his team's game plan.

"We will attack 4o% but try to defend about 60% because they are playing at home" the coaching licensing holder said.

Real De Banjul who forked out two million dalasis -on tickets and other incurred expenses for the CAF Champions League -will have to do without two of its key players in Modou Njie Sarr and Muctarr Jallow.

The pair are being tested by an unnamed Oman Elite League club in a bid to impress and sign professional contracts. Njie Sarr a proving goal poacher had fifteen goals under his belt finishing as top scorer.

The absence of the danger man will have Alagie Sarr counting on his youngsters most of whom will be making their first international debut in the Caf Champions League.

Ex-Brikama United vice captain Modou Jallow will be Real's sole experienced attacker having made his debut against Esperance De Tunis last year, in the same competition.

Unlike the Gambian side, FUS Rabat, amid a cash-stabled club, will be debuting in Africa's biggest club football tourney.

Arriyadia Sport channel is expected to broadcast the match live from the Moulay Abdellah complex on 19:00hrs GMT. Founded under French protectorate, FUS Rabat have never won the Moroccan league club but have five league runners-up prizes and were 2010 Confederation Cup winners.
