Al Ahly vs Auckland City preview
The Egyptian side will be competing in the Club World Cup after finishing as runners-up in the 2022 CAF Champions League, losing 2-0 to Wydad AC.
Marcel Koller’s side will try to win the trophy after having failed in their seven previous attempts, but even if the cup is not on their resume, they have the honor of being the team with the most games played ever in the tournament (18).
Al Ahly will go into the match against Auckland City in good form, as they are commanding the Egyptian league with 37 points, six points clear of second-placed Pyramids, who have played one more game.
If Al Ahly are no casuals in the Club World Cup, the same can be said of the New Zealanders, as they will feature in the competition for a record 10th time after lifting their 10th OFC Champions League trophy last year, defeating thrashing Venus 3-0 in the final game.
Albert Riera’s team didn’t compete in last year’s edition after withdrawing to comply with the guidelines in New Zealand during the coronavirus pandemic.
Auckland FC have had plenty of time to prepare for their first test in the competition. They last played a competitive game at the start of December, when they defeated Wellington Olympic at home (3-2) to lift the National League 2022 title.
Al Ahly vs Auckland City: prediction
It will certainly be a competitive game, where both teams will try to start their quest for the title with a win, which would lead them to play heavy favorites Real Madrid in the semifinals.
However, Al Ahly have been more active lately and haven’t lost a game in their league, which could make the difference on Wednesday.
Prediction: Al Ahly 1-0
