Ahly have said they will fly to Equatorial Guinea on Wednesday to face Cano Sport in the capital of Malabo on 14 September in the round of 32 of the Confederation of African Football's (CAF) Champions League.

Last month, eight-time African champions Ahly beat South Sudanese Atlabara 13-0 on aggregate in the round of 64.

Cano Sport beat Ethiopia's Mekelle 3-2 on aggregate in the same preliminary stage.

Ahly will host Cano Sport in the second-leg match in Egypt two weeks later.

Ahly are continuing their quest to win a ninth African championship under a new coaching team headed by Swiss coach Rene Weiler, who took the helm last week.

The technical staff also announced on Friday that left-back Mahmoud Wahid will be on the squad for the Cano Sport trip, despite suffering from a bruise that prevented him from participating in group training sessions last week.
