The game is scheduled for April 5, but Ahly want to move it to the next day because “the long flight to South Africa will cause great pressure on the players”.
Ahly’s football director Said Abdelhafiz told the club’s website: “There are difficulties in playing the game on 5 April as we are supposed to arrive in South Africa on the fourth,”
“The long flight to South Africa will cause great pressure on the players as they won’t have the needed rest before the match,” he added.
“I am hoping the CAF will appreciate our circumstances and postpone the game for one day,” Abdelhafiz concluded.
