Ahly are determined to secure a spot among the top four teams in the Egyptian Premier League as they prepare to face Pharco FC at Alexandria’s Borg El-Arab Stadium on Friday in a delayed game.

The encounter is expected to be a straightforward task for the Red Devils -- who recently clinched the CAF Champions League title -- given their opponents' current struggle in the relegation zone.

Currently positioned eighth in the table with 33 points, Ahly still have seven games in hand behind league leaders Pyramids FC due to their involvement in continental tournaments.

These delayed matches constitute an opportunity for Ahly to ascend the standings and strengthen their position in their quest to defend their league title.

In contrast, Pharco FC struggles in the relegation zone, occupying 16th place with 21 points. Pharco FC is determined to accumulate crucial points to avoid demotion, which threatens the team.

Unfortunately for Ahly, they will be without the services of Palestinian striker Wessam Abou Ali, who is sidelined with a calf injury sustained during national team duty last week.

Similarly, South African winger Percy Tau and Akram Tawfiq will also miss the game.
