Ahly’s football director Sayed Abdel-Hafiz has said that Tuesday’s clash against ENPPI in round 25 of the Egyptian Premier League will be hard.

“All of the two teams’ matches are always tough but our players are ready to clinch the three points,” Abdel-Hafiz was quoted as saying on the club’s official website.

The Red Devils are defending their title and are level on 49 points at the top of table with their arch-rivals Zamalek, who are competing for their first championship since 2004.

“The team is motivated and high on morale and they are aware of the importance of these three points in the title race,” he added.

As for the squad, Abdel-Hafiz confirmed that striker Emad Meteb is in form and ready to wear Ahly’s jersey and lead the front line after fully recovering from a long-term knee injury.

Ahmed Nagy “Gedo” joined Sunday’s training session after recovering from a muscle strain but coach Manuel Jose hasn’t announced yet whether he will be included in the match squad.

“I am hoping that luck smiles at us during this crucial clash,” said Abdel-Hafiz.
