Al Ahly’s assistant coach Samy Komsan says the players are brimming with confidence ahead of the 2019 Egyptian Super Cup.
The Red Devils are scheduled to take on their arch-rivals Zamalek in a highly anticipated match at the Cairo International Stadium on Friday.
Al Ahly defeated Equatorial Guinea’s Kano Sport 2-0 in the first-leg game of the 32nd round of the CAF Champions League over the weekend.
Komsan feels the victory has boosted the players’ confidence ahead of the Cairo Derby.
“Defeating Kano Sport is a positive motivational push for the players ahead of the Egypt Super Cup. However, Ahly-Zamalek matches have their own calculations,” Komsan said.
“The domestic Super Cup final will definitely be a tough game, each side will play for the win and clinch a title at the beginning of the season.
“All the players are focused. Everyone on the team knows the importance of the game as it is a title game.”
Al Ahly and Zamalek qualified for this year’s Super Cup after winning the Premier League and Egyptian Cup respectively.
