Mabrouk announces squad list for Orlando Pirates encounter
The Red Devils are looking to qualify for their second CAF Confederation Cup final in a row by overcoming the Pirates in Suez. Al Ahly suffered a 1-0 away loss against the South Africans and will try to score two unanswered goals to qualify for the final.
The squad list features the return of right-back Bassem Ali who missed the first leg in Johannesburg due to his two-game suspension, after receiving a yellow card against Espérance Sportive de Tunis in the penultimate round of the group stage.
Al Ahly captain Hossam Ghaly and Walid Soliman continue to miss out due to their respective injuries. Other than that, the squad list remains unchanged from the one that travelled to South Africa last week.
Al Ahly squad:
Goalkeepers: Sherif Ekramy, Ahmed Adel, Mosaad Awad.
Defenders: Ahmed Fathi, Mohamed Naguib, Saad Samir, Sherif Hazem, Mohamed Hany, Hussein El Sayed, Sabry Rahil, Bassem Ali.
Midfielders: Momen Zakaria, Abdallah El-Said, Hossam Ashour, Saleh Gomaa, Ramadan Sobhy.
Forwards: Malick Evouna, John Antwi, Emad Meteb, Amr Gamal, Ahmed Abdel Zaher.
The match is set to kick off at 20:30 Egypt time, and will be played at the Suez Stadium.
