Our Free Al Ahly vs Al Merreikh Predictions

Al Ahly and Al Merreikh meet for the third time in the history of the North African clubs. However, all-time title holders and also, reigning champions, Al Ahly of Egypt haven’t had their best in this year’s tournament. The hosts have bagged only a point from two games, with no goal to show for it. Here is how the Egyptians will likely perform against the Sudanese opponents on matchday.

Al Merreikh to open the scoring

Al Merreikh is the favourites to score the first goal in this game. They have been strong at the back and clinical in the final third. Things seemed to have gone from bad to worse for Al Ahly and it could be even disastrous on Saturday when they host Sudan’s Al Merreikh for the third group stage match in the CAF Champions League.

Under 2.5

We are yet to see lots of getting scored in the 2022 CAF Champions League. Most of the teams have adopted a defensive approach to matches, especially when playing away from home. We think that will be the same case in this game.

Al Alhy vs Al Merreikh CAF Champions League Preview, News and Lineups

Al Ahly’s Walter Bwalya is still ruled out of this game but that should not affect the chances of the hosts winning this game having playing without him since the tournament started. The Egyptian side have one point from two games and have failed to find the net, a record that has been worrying for the fans given that they are not only the returning champions but also the all-time title holders in this competition.

Things will likely get complicated for Al Ahly in this battle against neighbours, Al Merreikh from Sudan. The visitors have three points from two games and have looked threatening since the tournament kicked off. Moreover, while Al Ahly won the first encounter with Al Merreikh 3-0 back in February 2021, a 2-2 draw away from home in the second meeting two months later meant this third meeting could be a battle for the brave.
