The shot-stopper sees little prospect for his side knocking out the Egyptian giants from the continent's flagship competition

Ghana goalkeeper Daniel Agyei feels his side Jimma Abba Jifar's fairytale run in the Caf Champions League could come to an end when they face Al Ahly in the first leg of the last qualifying round later in the week. 
 
The Ethiopian side saw off ASAS Telecom of Djibouti in the first round and will have to overcome another uphill task before they can qualify to the group stage for the first time in their history.
 
"We will come to face Ahly in Cairo in order to enjoy only the game. We know we do not have a strong team that can compete with Al Ahly," Agyei said as quoted by Ghanaweb.
 
"We have a new team now. The squad that won the Ethiopian league last season has not been the same. Many of the players have left and we've signed new players," he said.
 
"We are going to play against the best club in Africa. The question about winning against Al Ahly or going through to the group stage is difficult and impossible.
 
"We will go into that match just to enjoy it because we simply do not have a strong team but despite all this, we are not afraid," he added. 

Ahly will host Jifar in the first leg on December 14, with the reverse fixture taking place in Addis Ababa between December 21 and 23.
