Ahly’s coach Hossam El-Badry has announced on Thursday his 20-man squad for the Champions League Group B clash against Ghanaian side Berekum Chelsea on Saturday at Cairo's Military Academy stadium.

Mauritanian forward Dominique Da Silva returned to Ahly’s squad after serving a two-match ban for being sent off in a preliminary-round game against Stade Malien.

Striker El-Sayed Hamdy has been included in Ahly’s squad for the first time since the arrival of coach Hossam El-Badry two months ago.

Duo Mohamed Abou-Treika and Emad Meteb will miss the game after Ahly agreed to let them remain with Egypt's U-23 team, who will face Japan on Saturday in the quarterfinals of the London Olympic Games. Ahly right-back Ahmed Fathi, who is also with Egypt in London, is not available for the Chelsea game anyway due to automatic suspension.

Playmaker Abdallah El-Saied is likely to be included in Ahly’s starting line-up for the first time since El-Badry took over to replace the evergreen Abou-Treika, who put in some impressive displays in London.

Ahly are leading the group with six points, two ahead of second-placed Chelsea. TP Mazembe of the DR Congo are third with a solitary point while Zamalek, Ahly's arch-rivals, lie at the bottom with no points.

Ahly squad:

Goalkeepers: Sherif Ekrami, Mahmoud Aboul-Sauod, Ahmed Adel

Defenders: Wael Gomaa, Mohamed Naguib, Sherif Abdel-Fadil, Sayed Moawad, Ahmed Shedid, Ahmed Sedik

Midfielders: Hossam Ashour, Hossam Ghaly, Trezeguet, Mohamed Barakat, Walid Soliman, Abdallah El-Saied, Mohamed Nagy "Gedo"

Strikers: Fabio Junior, Oussou Konan, Dominique Da Silva, El-Sayed Hamdy
