LIVE: Al Ahly v Al Nasr | Egyptian League | JAN 2nd, 2018
MATCH K.O. at 19:00 Cairo LOCAL time (GMT+2)
Venue: Cairo International stadium
Referee: Mohamed Adel
Al Ahly will be eyeing their first win in 2018 to bridge the gap with leaders Ismaily when they visit lowly side Nasr in the Egyptian Premier League on Tuesday.
Holders Ahly, who only won twice in their last five league matches, lie second in the table with 33 points, four behind leaders Ismaily, but they still have two games in hand.
Nasr, who are in the danger zone, shouldn’t be a major challenge for the Red Devils as they have only won two of their 15 games.
Coach Hossam El-Badry will be resting influential playmaker Abdallah El-Said and striker Junior Ajayi, while midfielder Hossam Ashour won’t be available due to injury.
Ahly will be boosted by the return of striker Marwan Mohsen who has been out for almost a year with a knee injury.
