The Reds will be hosted by their Tunisian counterparts in the first leg of the prestigious tournament semis.

Hours before heading to Tunisia on Tuesday, 30-year-old El-Shahat was suffering from muscular pains before undergoing scans to determine his ability for the Esperance test.

“Scans revealed that El-Shahat is ready for Friday’s game,” Ahly’s doctor Ahmed Abu Abla was quoted as saying by the club’s official website.

Ten-time African Champions Ahly advanced to the semifinals after a 2-0 aggregate victory over Raja of Morocco.

On the other side, Esperance reached the same round after a 2-1 on aggregate win over Algeria's JSK.
