Al Ahly manager Martin Jol announced the 19-man squad set to face Young Africans in the return leg of the round of 16.

The Red Devils will host the Tanzanian side on Wednesday at 19:30 CLT. Al Ahly will go into the game with high hopes to advance to the next stage, after the first leg ended in a 1-1 draw.

Jol excluded Saleh Gomaa, Ahmed El-Sheikh and John Antwi as well as Bassem Ali, Mohamed Naguib and Ahmed Hamdy from the squad. The six players were left out due to technical reasons.

In addition, Al Ahly keeper Ahmed Adel Abdel-Moneim continued to miss due to injury.

Al Ahly Squad:

Goalkeepers: Sherif Ekramy and Mosaad Awad.
Defenders: Saad Samir, Rami Rabia, Ahmed Hegazy, Hussein El-Sayed, Ahmed Fathi, Mohamed Hany and Sabry Rahil.
Midfielders: Hossam Ghaly, Hossam Ahsour, Abdallah El-Said, Mo’men Zakaria, Walid Soliman, Ramadan Sobhy and Amr El-Sulaya.
Forwards: Amr Gamal, Malick Evouna and Emad Meteb.

A goalless draw or a victory on Wednesday would secure Al Ahly a spot in the group stage of the African tournament.
