Tip Setif - AL Ahly SC (Egy)
Prediction published on May 13, 2022 at 10:19 PM
ES Setif plays host to African champions Al Ahly in the return leg of their semi final clash, with Setif having an uphill task after suffering a heavy loss in the first leg. Setif lost 4-0 in Cairo, and had Amir Karaoui sent off, which means he is suspended here. The Algerian side recovered with a 7-0 home win over Relizane in their domestic league, but here they will face a tougher opponent. The loss in Cairo was their first and here they need to score five unanswered goals to get to the final and for a team whose biggest winning margin in the Champions League hasn’t gone past two goals in the last 10 matches, this is really some task. They have five clean sheets in the last eight Champions League matches at home, which will be a good start but in four earlier meetings with Al Ahly, Setif haven’t managed a clean sheet.
Al Ahly’s first leg win over Setif was their second in four meetings; each side has now won twice in four meetings between these two. Al Ahly have however managed two clean sheets in the four meetings. The visitors go into this game unbeaten in the last five matches but three have ended in draws. They have the advantage here and with their run in the Champions League, it will take a lot for Setif to overturn this. Though Al Ahly have two clean sheets only in the last five Champions League matches, they haven’t lost in the last five, and in three of them, they’ve scored two or more goals. Both teams have scored in five of their last 10 Champions League matches and they’ve lost two of the 10. Away from home in this competition though, Al Ahly have managed just one win in five.
Key points Setif - AL Ahly SC (Egy)

Conclusion Setif - AL Ahly SC (Egy)
Al Ahly have a good lead going into this game and will be keen to hold on to it. It will call for really brave defending, as Setif playing at home have done fairly well in this competition. We expect Setif to attack more and given this fixture rarely favors the away team, we will back Setif to win but Al Ahly to advance.
