CAIRO: Al-Ahly will face Ithad of Alexandria Saturday afternoon in the 16th round of Egypt’s premier league, Youm7 reported.
Al Ahly are currently second of the league table with 29 points, only one point less than Zamalek.
The Red Castle continues preparations for their clash with arch-rivals Zamalek amid attempts by the team caretaker Abdel Aziz Abdel Shafy to fix past mistakes.
Abdel Shafy was appointed as the team’s coach after the contract with Portuguese Jose Peseiro has been terminated last week.
