CAF Champions League betting and spectator preview: Al Ahly and Simba meet at venue to measure strength and learn who makes it to the next stage.

Both teams should be fairly well rested for this game, as they have had some quiet days to prepare. Hopefully this will translate into lots of action on the pitch.

15-3-5 (wins/draws/losses). These are the numbers for Simba when playing away games on grass, which is not the surface they have on their own home stadium (which has artifical turf). Their goal statistics from those 23 matches are 36-17 (scored/conceded).

It's time to recharge all electronic entertainment devices for Simba, who are travelling more than 6000 kilometers to play this game.
