LIVE: Smouha v Al Ahly | Egyptian League | April 8, 2018
Match K.O. at 19:30 Cairo time (GMT +2)
Venue: Borg El-Arab Stadium (Alexandria)
Referee: Mohamed El-Hefny
Ahly will be looking to continue their superb winning streak when they visit Smouha in Alexandria on Sunday.
After securing the league title with six weeks to spare, a commendable Ahly side still coasted to a16th consecutive victory with a 2-1 defeat of lowly Tanta last week.
Ahly manager Hossam El-Badry did not introduce numerous changes to his starting line up in the Tanta win, with keeper Ali Lotfi and midfielder Akram Tawfik the two notable starters.
But El-Badry is likely to make bigger changes this time around, with a host of first-teamers missing out due to different reasons.
Keeper Sherif Ekramy, Tunisia left-back Ali Maaloul, center-back duo Saad Samir and Ramy Rabia plus midfielder Amr El-Sulaya and winger Phakamani Mahlambi are all nursing respective injuries.
Egypt right-back Ahmed Fathi is rested for the game, while under-fire playmaker Abdallah El-Said has been left out for the second consecutive game as Ahly are set to loan him out to the Saudi league.
Top-scorer Walid Azaro is out as he serves automatic suspension.
Ahly are top with a massive 17-point gap with second-placed Ismaily, while Smouha are fifth with 46 points.
