The Uefa Champions League winners are the firm favourites for this tie even though they have looked out of sorts after the World Cup break. In fact, they head into the tournament on the back of a 1-0 defeat to Mallorca and any further slip might put Carlo Ancelotti's job on the line.
On the other hand, Al Ahly qualified for the semi-final after beating Auckland City and Seattle Sounders in the previous two rounds. It is their third successive participation in the semi-finals of the competition and no other club in the history of the competition has more appearances (20) than them.
