Al Ahly’s defeat In Caf Champions League Raises Hopes For Mamelodi Sundowns, Despite Percy Tau’s struggles

South African forward Percy Tau was on the losing side as Al Ahly was defeated 1-0 by Al Hilal Omdurman in a Caf Champions League encounter.

Tau, who has scored one goal in six appearances for the Egyptian giants, was unable to make a significant impact in the match.

The next match for Tau and Al Ahly will be against his former club, Mamelodi Sundowns.

South African star Percy Tau made a 75-minute appearance for Al Ahly in their Caf Champions League group stage opener against Al Hilal Omdurman but was unable to make an impact as the Red Devils succumbed to a 1-0 defeat.

Tau had been hoping to help the Egyptian giants kick off their campaign in style, but was kept quiet by the hosts, with Makabi Lilepo scoring the decisive goal for the Blue Wave to secure all three points in Group B.

Despite his best efforts, Tau has only managed to score one goal in his six appearances for Al Ahly so far this season. His next assignment will be against his former club, Mamelodi Sundowns, in the Caf Champions League.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Al Hilal suffered a 1-0 loss to Mamelodi Sundowns in their opening Caf Champions League group match, with the winning goal coming from the in-form Cassius Mailula.

Percy Tau and Al Ahly were set to face Coton Sport in their first Caf Champions League match, but it was postponed due to the team’s participation in the Club World Cup where they finished fourth.

In addition, the South African striker has only scored once in his last six appearances across all competitions since his return from injury, which may be a cause for concern for both club and country.

Next up for Tau and his teammates is a crucial fixture against Mamelodi Sundowns, who are currently leading the group.

It remains to be seen if Tau will have a significant impact against his former club.
