Egyptian League Live: Smouha v Al Ahly | JAN 8th, 2019
Time: 17:00 CLT | 10:00 ET Canada-USA
Venue: Borg El-Arab stadium, Alexandria
Referee: Mohamed Adel
A wounded Ahly will be looking to return to winning ways in the Egyptian league when they face Smouha in an adjourned game at Alexandria’s Borg El-Arab Stadium on Tuesday.
Ahly slumped to their third league defeat this season on Friday when they lost 2-1 to Pyramids.
The loss angered Ahly fans, especially since it came only one week after the team’s draw against Dakhleya.
Ahly’s poor results this season prompted the club’s management to initiate a heavy recruitment drive in this winter transfer window in order to salvage the season.
The team signed their former winger Ramadan Sobhi on a six-month loan from Premier League side Huddersfield before recruiting Angolan winger Geraldo.
Wadi Degla’s international midfielder Mohamed Mahmoud also joined the club, as well as Maqassa fullback Mahmoud Wahid.
In a stunning affair, the 40-time Egypt champions completed the signing of Al-Ain Egyptian international winger Hussein El-Shahat on Sunday for up to $5 million, a club record fee.
One day later, they signed Smouha defender Yasser Ibrahim to strengthen their defence.
The first four-players were included in Ahly’s 20-man list for the Smouha clash.
