 The hosts have shown signs of improvement but results are still to come as the Alexandrian outfit have lost to Ismaily and Zamalek in previous matches.

Amer would bet on in-form Cameroonian striker, Edet Otobong and Hani El-Egeizy, back to their old scoring ways with a brace against Zamalek, to carry the burden of breaking through the Reds’ defense.

However he will have to do without defender, Sayed Farid who was shown the red card against Zamalek the previous day. Former Ahly and Zamalek defender, Ibrahim Saied will replace him in the starting eleven, after more than four months on the bench.

Ahly are eager to bounce back as they have dropped points against Ismaily 1-3 and Smouha 1-1.

The African giants’ new tactician Abdel Aziz Abdel Shafy “Zizo”, will lose some of the best attackers as Mohamed Barakat and Abdel-Hamid Shabana have been ruled out because of injuries. Defensive Mohamed Shawky won’t make the trip either as he has been dropped from the 18-man list.

Meanwhile he will welcome back defender Sherif Abdel-Fadil, left-winger Sayed Moawad and midfielder Shehab Eddine Ahmed after recovering from injuries.

Ahly are 5th in the Egyptian league table with 19 points, 8 points behind leaders Zamalek, and will still have two games in hand after Friday’s showdown against Ittihad of Alexandria.
