Ahly will play two friendly matches during their training camp next month in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the Egyptian club announced on Tuesday.

"The team will play two friendly matches on 2 and 6 December during the training camp in UAE," the club said via its official website.

Ahly will start the camp from 25 November until 7 December as the Egyptian league will be on hold due to the Olympic national team's participation in the Africa Cup of Nations.

The Red Devils are currently preparing for Thursday's match against Maqassa in the fourth match day of the Egyptian Premier League.

Right-back Ahmed Fathi has recovered from his muscular injury and will be available for the match.

Earlier on Monday, midfielder Hossama Ashour was declared fit for the match after recovering from a groin injury.

Ahly are bidding to continue their perfect start to the Egyptian Premier League season as they are leading the table with 9 points after three games.

The Cairo giants finished last season with one trophy – the Egypt Super Cup – after losing the league and cup to archrivals Zamalek.
