Al-Ahly players seek revenge against Pyramids as the reds suffered two defeats against the blues at the Egyptian league last season.

Pyramids repeated their victory at the second round with a 1-0 win thanks to a goal from their Brazilian magician, Keno, who left the club this summer.
Egyptian Premier League rising power Pyramids FC defeated Etoile du Congo 4-1 on Saturday in Cairo in their first-ever Confederation Cup game.
Pyramids FC, who splashed millions of dollars last season to rebuilt their squad, finished third in the league behind Ahly and Zamalek.
Under the commands of Frenchman Sebastien Desabre, who played his first official game with the team, they hope to emulate their domestic success on the continental scene.
