Official: Al Ahly face Roma in a friendly in UAE
“The match will take place in the United Arab Emirates on May 20,” Al Ahly executive manager Shereen Shams told the club’s official website.
The remaining details of the match will be announced during a press conference scheduled to take place on Tuesday.
“Roma’s match is the first among many international friendlies to come, as Al Ahly will face several big clubs in the upcoming period,” Shams added.
This would mark the third time that Al Ahly face Roma, with their first friendly in 2002 ending 2-1 for the Cairo giants in Egypt thanks to goals from Ibrahim Said and Evelino, while Vicenzo Montella pulled one back from the spot for the Giallorossi.
They met again in 2008, when Roma defeated Al Ahly 3-0 courtesy of goals from Mauro Esposito, Matteo Brighi and David Pizarro.
Al Ahly currently top the Egyptian Premier League table on 56 points from 24 matches, while Roma sit third on 71 points after 35 matches.
