The German goalkeeper told FIFA.com that they know Al Ahly team and it will be not easy for them if they face each other in the semi-final, although Bayern Munich’s goal is to win the title.

“We know Al Ahly; they are the winner of the CAF Champions League so it may be a difficult task,” Neuer said.

“It was tough in 2013 as well. It’s not easy to play against teams you don’t know much about,” he added.

As a reminder, Neuer has once played against Al Ahly in a friendly back in 2012 as Bayern Munich won 2-1.

He was also in the sticks when Bavarians defeated Raja Casablanca to win the FIFA Club World Cup in 2013 (2-0).
