Ahly will be looking to make it five wins in a row when they host ninth-placed Dakhleya at Cairo Stadium in the Egyptian league on Friday.
After beating league leaders Ismaily 2-0 early in the week, reigning champions Ahly will be going into the game with high morale in their bid to defend their title.
The Reds, however, will face a Dakhleya side who were unbeaten in their last four league meetings – which included two recent victories over Nasr and Asiouty Sport.
Keeper Sherif Ekramy is still out injured, with understudy shot-stopper Mohamed El-Shennawi set to continue in goal after impressing of late.
Defender Mohamed Naguib is still sidelined, as manger Hossam El-Badry is set to continue with natural full-back Ayman Ashraf in the center-back position alongside Saad Samir.
Ahly, who still have four games in hand, are currently seventh of the league table with 13 points, nine adrift of leaders Masry who played 10 fixtures.
