Egyptian League leaders Zamalek are at full strength for their crucial game on Saturday in Alexandria against defending champions Ahly with all key players declared fit.

Coach Christian Gross named a 22-man squad for tomorrow's derby, which many see as the most competitive match between the arch-rivals in years.

Zamalek's internationals midfielder Tarek Hamed and defender Mahmoud Alaa, who were in doubt for the game after sustaining injuries while on recent international duty, have been cleared and were included in the squad.

The Swiss tactician has also included out-favor playmakers Ayman Hefni and Mohamed Ibrahim among the 22 finalists.

Zamalek, who are top of the league with 53 points, hope to extend their two point lead over second-place Ahly, who climbed up the table after recovering from a slow start of the season.

Zamalek’s squad:

Keepers: Mahmoud “Genesh” Abdel-Rehim, Emad El-Sayed

Defenders: Hazem Emam, Hamdi Nagguez, Mahmoud Alaa, Mahmoud “Wench” Hamdi, Mohamed Abdel-Ghani, Bahaa Magdi, Abdallah Gomaa, Mohamed Abdel-Salam.

Midfielders: Tarek Hamed, Mahmoud Abdel-Aziz, Ferjani Sassi, Ahmed “Zizo” El-Sayed, Ibrahim Hassan, Ayman Hefni, Mohamed Ibrahim, Mahmoud “Kahraba” Abdel-Moneim, Hamid Ahadad.

Strikers: Khaled Boutaib, Omar El-Said.
