Medical scans show that Ahly striker Emad Meteb is suffering a minor knee injury, which he sustained during Friday’s training. However, he will join Sunday’s training sessions in preparation for the second leg game against the Algerian team Mouloudia Alger in the CAF Champions League, according to the club’s official site.

There has been doubt surrounding the 28-year-old’s participation in the 28 August Algeria game since enduring his injury.

“Meteb will join Sunday’s training as he is currently fit for the Mouloudia Alger game,” Ahly football director was quoted as saying on the Ahly website.

The Pharaohs attacker notched a brace in the first half of the Ahly vs. Mouloudia first leg game, helping his side to claim their first group-stage 2-0 win at Cairo Stadium early this month.

The six-time African champions are eager to qualify for the competition's semi-finals, after a poor start to their group-stage campaign.

Morocco’s Wydad Casablanca held the Egyptians to a 3-3 home draw before suffering a 2-1 loss to Tunisia's Esperance.

Ahly are third place of group B with four points, one behind Moroccan’s Wydad and Tunisian Esperance.
