18:00 Koller makes several modifications to the team’s starting line-up, introducing  Karim Walid in the heart of the midfield alongside Ahmed Nabil at the expense of veteran midfielder Amr El-Soulaya.

17:30 Fans have packed the stadium with 90 minutes remaining. 20,000 supporters are allowed to attend the game.

16:30 Ahly's coach, Marcel Koller, boasts an impeccable track record against Zamalek, leading the Red Devils to triumph in four competitions. On the other hand, Zamalek is determined to secure their inaugural league win against their fierce rivals since August 2020, when they emerged victorious with a 3-1 scoreline against Ahly.

15:00 Zamalek come into the game with confidence following their 3-0 win over Ittihad of Alexandria last week. Midfielders Ahmed Hamdi, Nasser Maher, and Ahmed "Zizo" Sayed have displayed strong performances, but the team's goalkeeper, Mohamed Awaad, and the defensive line remain areas of concern.

13:30 Ahly face challenges ahead of the Cairo derby against Zamalek, as several key players are unavailable including long-term absentees such as goalkeeper Mohamed El-Shennawy, defender Yasser Ibrahim, and midfielders Aliou Dieng and Emam Ashour.

There are also fresh concerns with winger Hussein El-Shahat, midfielder Marwan Attia, and South African winger Percy Tau.

12:00 The winning team's morale and standing in the domestic league table will be influenced by a triumph in the Cairo derby, which will also benefit their upcoming continental responsibilities.

On Sunday, Zamalek will face Ghana's Dreams FC in the opening leg of the Confederation Cup semi-finals. In contrast, Ahly will face a challenging task against TP Mazembe from DR Congo in Lubumbashi on Saturday as part of the Champions League.
