3 Way - TP Mazembe 7/1

The Red Devils have an entire domestic season ahead of them. They have played 11 games in the Egyptian Premier League, with most teams in the league having played 17 games on average. This is one of the reason why Al Ahly will feel they need to bring this trophy home before turning their focus onto what is happening in their domestic league. Since their participation in the 2023 Fifa Club World Cup, they have had 7 games postponed in the Egyptian Premier League as they were participating in the CAF Champions League. Although this is a norm for the Egyptian giants, all those postponed games would be in vein if they were to fail to qualify for the final.

TP Mazembe has been the surprise package of this season's CAF Champions League. They were seeded in a group that includes Mamelodi Sundowns, Nouadhibou and Pyramids. Many fans of the game, expected Pyramids and Mamelodi Sundowns to be the teams that would advance from this group. However, TP Mazembe performed well in the group stage earning a spot in the knock of stages. They knocked out group C winners in the second leg after a goalless first leg. A match in which they were the underdogs and the team expected to bow out of the competition. Now history is repeating itself, a goalless first leg and a win probability that is giving them an 11% chance of progression against the Red Devils. Can they do it? I believe they can.
