Al Ahly manager Martin Jol has announced the 22-man squad that will be facing ASEC Mimosas in the group stage of the CAF Champions League.

The Red Devils will host the Ivorian club at the Borg El-Arab Stadium on Tuesday in a crucial fixture that comes after both teams lost their opening Group A games.

The Red Castle will be hoping to get past ASEC without the help of Ramadan Sobhi and Ahmed El-Sheikh, who both miss due to injury. They join the team’s injury list, which includes Abdallah El-Said and Malick Evouna, who’ve combined for 23 goals in the Egyptian Premier League this season.

Al Ahly squad:

Goalkeepers: Sherif Ekramy, Ahmed Adel Abdel-Moneim and Mosaad Awad.

Defenders: Ahmed Hegazy, Rami Rabia, Saad Samir, Mohamed Naguib, Ahmed Fathi, Bassem Ali, Mohamed Hany, Sabry Raheel and Hussein El-Sayed.

Midfielders: Hossam Ghaly, Hossam Ashour, Amr El-Sulaya, Saleh Gomaa, Walid Soliman, Ahmed Hamdy and Momen Zakaria.

Forwards: Emad Meteb, John Antwi and Amr Gamal.

The club’s executive manager Sherin Shams has previously confirmed that 15,000 fans will be permitted to attend the match.

The Cairo giants go into the game with renewed confidence after securing the Egyptian Premier League title on Friday with two matches to spare.
