LIVE: Al Ahly v Ismaily SC | Egyptian Premier League | FEB 15th 2017
Time: 17:00 Cairo Local Time
Venue: Al Gaish Stadium | Suez
Ahly will be determined to put their Egyptian Super Cup loss against arch-rivals Zamalek behind their backs when they resume their league campaign against bitter foes Ismaily at Suez’s Army Stadium on Wednesday.
The Reds are currently in charge of the table, five points clear of second-placed Maqassa, and 11 ahead of fifth-placed Zamalek who have two games in hand.
A win on Wednesday is likely to give Hossam El-Badry’s men a much-needed boost against an Ismaily side that do not particularly look the same imposing team of the first decade of the 2000s.
Lying 10th in the league standings on 22 points, the Dervishes have lost three games and drawn 10, winning just four times.
