"They should keep attacking without neglecting to defend. However, defending throughout could be costly against a side that is not overwhelmed by the occasion," said Marks to Briefly News.

Al Ahly is no stranger to the CAF Champions League finals and it will be comfortable territory for them. Chiefs need to make sure that they don't let the wheels fall off during the match so that they can clinch the title.

Marks thinks that defending works but at the end of the day, goals are needed to win matches. He warns that being too defensive could end up being costly.
