Maaloul boosts Ahly ahead of Raja test in Champions League

Ahmed Abd El Rasoul , Tuesday 19 Apr 2022

Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane has called up Tunisian left back Ali Maaloul after recovering from his injury for Friday’s anticipated Champions League match against Raja of Morocco.


According to the team’s official website, Maaloul was among Ahly’s 25-man squad that headed early on Tuesday to Morocco ahead of the return match against Raja in the African Champions League quarterfinals this coming Saturday.

Title holders Ahly took a slender first-leg advantage after beating 10-man Raja 2-1 at home on Saturday.

The 32-year-old Maaloul missed the first leg as he was suffering from a muscular strain.

Record seven-time African champions Ahly are seeking to become the first team to win a hat-trick of successive Champions League crowns.
