Al Ahly - SL Benfica (July 29th, Cairo Stadium)


Meeting of the reds. Benfica travel to Cairo for the second time after the famous 60s side led by Eusebio and Coluna faced Al Ahly 45 years ago..

We won 3-2, with our legendary goalie Adel Heikal making saves left, right and centre.

The two clubs have a few things in common - both boast over 30 domestic league titles, both have Angolan internationals on board and last but surely not least - a certain Manuel Jose.. though I perfectly acknowledge that you lot don't quite rate him and that he didn't succeed as a coach at SLB, but it's the club of his heart.. alongside Al Ahly, of course!

Back to the match - Al Ahly are obliged to put on a decent performance to make up for the drubbing we received at the hands of Barcelona in April.

I would've went to the game but I'm not in Cairo at the moment, would've been a treat to watch Rui Costa live..

Besides Miccoli and Karagounis, who has left the team? I know that you signed Paraguay's Cardozo, who else has arrived?

Should be a good game, all the best.

I don't expect much from this game since it's only the second game of the pre-season and we're facing the African champions.

Anyway, Bergessio, Manuel Fernandes, Marc Zoro, Butt, Fabio Coentrão are the new faces this year and we are looking to be a lot stronger especially with Cardozo and Manuel Fernandes on the team.

Playing in the Egyptian heat in July? Wouldn't surprise me if FS made Rui play 180 minutes in that heat.

very curious to see this game, since i've never seen al ahly play, and not only are they the dominant team in africa, as the egyptian NT plays a very entertaining footy

i think the game was expected to start at 7.30, and Sic just announced it 30 mins earlier for the usual advertising marathon and in this case, to present us with this "comic" show

at least u can look at the blonde! i got nothing entertaining to look at
