Ahly striker Emad Meteb is doubtful about Sunday's clash against Tanzania's Young Africans due to injury.
The Cairo giants will be hosting the Tanzanian team in the second leg of the African Champions League round of 32.
"Meteb left the morning training session after suffering hamstring pains," the team's doctor Ehab Ahly said in a statement on the club’s official website on Tuesday.
"The player will undergo further scans to determine the extent of the injury, but he is so far doubtful about the Young Africans clash," the doctor added.
Meteb’s absence would aggravate the woes of the Egyptian giants who are targeting a speedy recovery after Ahly’s shock 1-0 defeat in Saturday’s first leg against Young Africans in Tanzania.
The return on Tuesday of Sabri Rahil and Abdallah El-Said to the training session following their recovery brought coach Mohamed Youssef some relief, as muscular injures had forced the midfield duo to miss the defending champions’ trip to Tanzania.
