Hesham Mohamed became the latest player to miss the final after picking up a minor hamstring injury, but will be available for the return-leg in Rades, according to the team doctor.

Team captain Hossam Ashour and Amr El-Sulya are expected to start in the midfield on Friday, with one of Akram Tawfik or Karim Nedved sitting on the bench.

Al Ahly will also be without injured duo Ali Maaloul and Junior Ajayi, alongside Momen Zakaria and Nasser Maher, who were omitted from the squad for technical reasons.
