Cairo giants Ahly and Zamalek will meet on Tuesday in a decisive Egyptian Premier League match at Gouna stadium.

The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) has picked the Red Sea tourist resort, over 430km from the capital, to host the event behind closed doors, due to security concerns.

Many other stadiums were suggested to host the most popular game in Egyptian football, including Suez, Petrosport and Sharm El-Shiekh stadiums.

The game will be held at 16:30 Cairo time (GMT +2).

Zamalek are bidding to beat their classic rivals as they only need a point to claim their first league trophy since 2004. They lead the table with 83 points, nine more than eight-successive winners Ahly.
