LIVE TV: Al Ahly v El-Entag | Egyptian League | FEB 24 2018
Match K.O. 20:00 Cairo local time (GMT+2)
Venue: Cairo’s International stadium
Referee: Mohamed Farouk
Four wins, starting from Saturday’s game against El-Entag El-Harby, will be enough to give Ahly a third consecutive Egyptian Premier League title as they retain their dominance of domestic football.
The Red Devils are once again playing in a league of their own, having opened up a staggering 20-point lead over nearest challengers Ismaily at the top of the table with nine matches remaining before the end of the season.
The formidable Cairo giants are on a 12-match winning run after a brief period of poor results in December. They are eyeing a record-extending 40th league title and their 11th in the past 12 editions.
They will miss key playmaker Abdallah El-Said and central defender Saad Samir against El-Entag due to injury and automatic suspension respectively.
Moroccan striker Walid Azaro is expected to start as a lone frontman as he aims to continue his recent prolific form, which saw him climb to the summit of the league’s scoring chart with 16 goals, three clear of Wadi Degla’s Omar El-Said.
