Mosimane suffered his second loss as Al Ahly head coach following a narrow 1-0 defeat in Tanzania against Simba SC. And Didier Gomes, Simba SC manager said that his side deserved to beat Al Ahly in the second match of the CAF Champions League group stages.
The only goal of the game came in the 31st minute when Luís Miquissone found the back of the net with a powerful finish which found the top left corner.
Despite sitting third in their group with three points, behind AS Vita Club on goal difference, the Reds still have a big chance of advancing to the next stage.
They will need seven or eight points from their next four games in order to keep their title defending campaign alive.
Al Ahly produced an average peformance. But their Tanzanian counterpart should be praised for asserting their dominance over the Cairo giants for the majority of the game.
Simba SC manager Dider Gomes seems to also believe that they had the upper hand for the majority of the encounter.
“From the way we played today, we deserved the win.” The former Ismaily head coach said after the match.
Al Ahly’s next game in the CAF Champions League will see them host AS Vita Club in Cairo on 5th March.
However, they will first face El-Gaish on Sunday, 28th February in the Egyptian Premier League.
