Ahly midfielders Abdullah El-Said and Shehab Ahmed returned to the Red's trainings sessions after recovering from injuries.

El-Said was sidelined from Ahly's trainings for three days after catching the flu and Shehab for suffering from an ankle injury.

"Shehab won't take part in the friendly against El-Intag El-Harby but will join normal trainings," the Ahly doctor told the club's official website.

Ahly are set to face Egypt's El-Entag El-Harby in a friendly match on Monday within the context of ongoing preparations for the crucial Champions League clash with Mazembe.

The Cairo giants' coach Hossam El-Badry also decided to sideline left winger Sayed Mowad and midfielder Mohamed Barakat after they both got their second yellow cards in last week's 1-1 draw with Ghanaian Chelsea.

Six-time African champions, Ahly are currently leading group B with ten points, three ahead of TP Mazembe, while Ghanaian side Chelsea has placed third in the group with five points.

Ahly needs only one point from the next two matches to qualify for the semi-finals.
