Al Ahly’s fixtures have been announced for the upcoming Egyptian Premier League season.
This year’s league will consist of 22 teams divided into two groups of 11, Al Ahly have been separated from Zamalek in addition to the returning Al Masry to avoid any tension between the two teams and their fans following the Port Said massacre.
The African champions face Smouha in Week three and ENPPI a week after, making it a very tough fortnight for the Red Devils.
The Red Devil’s first away game is against Al Ragaa in week five, which means they’ll have to travel all the way to Marsa Matrouh.
Meanwhile, Zamalek have an extremely tough schedule as they’re scheduled to face Al Masry on their league opener, before facing Ismaily a fortnight later.
