Mido also noted that the two sides will be on par in case Al-Ahly managed to maintain a balance between attack and defense stressing that Al Duhail can very dangerous on the flanks which require both Ali Ma'loul and Mohamed Hany to be very cautious about moving forward.

The ex-Tottenham and Ajax striker warned that the usual attacking roles both the right and left backs of Al Ahly play in the league might cost the team a lot against a team like Al Duhail.
