Live: Al Ahly vs Maqassa | Egyptian Premier League 2012/13
Ahly are looking to maintain their recent fine run at the expense of Maqassa in Wednesday’s Egyptian Premier League game.
The defending champions will be looking to maintain their recent fine run that included two consecutive victories over ENPPI and Gouna as they recovered from a slow start to the season.
They are joint top of Group A in the league’s new format with 15 points but have a game in hand over second-placed ENPPI.
Maqassa, on the other hand, lie sixth in the nine-team group with nine points. The top two in Groups A and B will advance to the decisive playoff, where a mini-league with only home fixtures will be held to determine the champion.
Ahly will only miss influential midfielder Hossam Ashour due to “teeth pain”, the club said on their website.
