TP Mazembe vs Al Ahly Betting Tips

  • Double Chance – Draw or Away 54/100
  • Both Teams to score – No 69/100

Double Chance – Draw or Away 54/100

The round to the semifinals was far from easy for both sides. with TP Mazembe having to beat the odds and win against Petro de Luanda in the quarter finals. The first leg was goalless, and TP Mazembe were able to edge the fixture in the second leg away from home with a 1-2 result. Domestically in the Linafoot Ligue, are leading the championship round by goal difference. They have scored 13 goals and conceded just 1 goal in the championship round of the Linafoot Ligue.

They are a team with goals in them. They netted 52 goals and conceded just 7 goals in the Ligue 1 – Group A this season. TP Mazembe carried their domestic form into the champions league, Beating Mamelodi Sundowns in the second round of the group stages by 1 – 0 at home. while also maintaining a record of 6 goals scored and 2 goals conceded. They are the most underrated team in the last four and pose a tangible threat to Al Ahly when they meet this weekend for the first leg.

Al Ahly finds themselves experiencing the total opposite of what their semifinals rivals are currently going through. The Egyptian Giants sit mid table in their domestic league, level on points with cross town rivals Zamalek and 9 spots behind log leaders Pyramids. Al Ahly has 4 games in hand over log Leaders Pyramids, so they may still find themselves ending the season as champions. However, their efforts have been invested in the CAF Champions League.

They finished their group without registering a single defeat. something only, they and Petro de Luanda have been able to achieve in this season’s competition. They convincingly knocked Simba out of the competition in the previous round with a 3-0 result. finding the back of the net in both legs to secure safe passage to the semifinals.

TP Mazembe are having a world class season; however, Al Ahly has the CAF Champions Pedigree. the 11-time champions will be eyeing progression to the final and will play pragmatically to secure safe passage to the next round. From the research, statistics, and opinion around this fixture. I believe the first leg will either end in a draw or Al Ahly will take the lead home for the second leg.  

Both Teams to score – No 69/100 

Both teams have been superb in defense this season. Al Ahly have managed to concede just 1 goal this entire CAF Champions League campaign while TP Mazembe conceded 3. Al Ahly has the joint best defense in the competition with the other team being Mamelodi Sundowns. Al Ahly is a tough team to score against. for TP Mazembe who have created 14 big chances and missed 7 of them. They will have to be more clinical if they are going to affect this game, and I do not see them doing so in the first leg of this time.
