Egyptian League Table:

Al Ahly (Champions with 81 points)

El Zamalek (3rd with 66 points)

Ahly are set to host Zamalek in the Cairo derby at Borg Al-Arab stadium on Monday, and both sides are looking for a win for different reasons.

After securing the domestic league title one month earlier, Ahly will be looking for a morale-boosting victory that will confirm their superiority over their archrivals Zamalek, who also secured an African berth with their third place in the league table.

Winning the title is important for Ahly and their fans, but defeating Zamalek will please their fans more.

A win in Monday’s clash will confirm that the team is on the right track after winning the domestic league and reaching the Champions League quarters.

Theoretically Ahly will have a good chance in the derby, and will be playing with a full squad.

On the other hand, Zamalek will be looking for a consolation win on the final day of the season, hoping to capitalise on their recent win against Talae El-Geish in the Egypt Cup quarters on Thursday.

Thursday’s win helped the team restore calm after a troubled week, which saw the team’s elimination from the Champions League group stage and club president Mortada Mansour sacking manager Augusto Inacio, before reversing his decision.
