Ahly has injury worries ahead of its round of 32 African Champions League clash against Ethiopian Coffee on 25 March.

“Strikers Dominic Da Silva and defender Wael Goma’a will miss the match due to injury, whilst Emad Meteb is a doubt,” Ahly’s doctor Ehab Ali told Ahram Online on Tuesday.

Veteran forward Meteb will rest for five days before undergoing a rehabilitation programme to prepare him for the game.

Ahly, which has won the Champions League a record six times, have ended their 40-day mourning period following the death of more than 70 of their fans at a match against Masry in Port Said.
