LIVE: Al Ahly v EL Masry | Egyptian League Derby | April 25th, 2019
Time: 20:00 Cairo local time | 14:00 ET
Venue: Haras El-Hodoud Stadium, Alexandria
Referee: Roberto García Orozco (Mexico)
A wounded Ahly side will be looking to return to winning ways in the Egyptian league on Thursday when they face Masry in a delayed game at Mexx Stadium in Alexandria.
The Red Devils lost to Pyramids 1-0 in a league game last week to escalate tensions in the club, especially since the defeat comes a few days after the club’s stunning elimination from the Champions League quarters.
After Pyramids’ defeat, Ahly fell to third place on the league table with 58 points, five points behind leaders Pyramids, who played three games more.
Ahly will have the chance to move to second place at the expense of Zamalek, who lost to Pyramids 1-0 on Tuesday.
Zamalek are now second on the league table with 60 points, just two points ahead of Ahly.
But Ahly’s mission will not be easy given the good performance of Masry under the guidance of coach Ihab Galal.
The new coach has done great work with the team, lifting them from the relegation zone to fourth place on the table with 46 points.
With their 2-1 win over Zamalek earlier this month, Masry confirmed that they are capable of posing a great threat for the league’s top flights.
