Venue: Al-Salam stadium, Cairo

Referee: Saied Hamza

Ahly are likely to maintain their winning start in the Egyptian Premier League when they meet lowly Wadi Degla, who will be eager to arrest a slump in form that saw them drop to the bottom of the table.

Defending champions Ahly, who are eyeing a fifth consecutive league crown, won their opening four matches of the new campaign with a swagger, producing vivid attacking displays in the process.

They netted a staggering 14 goals in those matches, conceding only once.

Their seemingly irresistible form has earned Ahly’s new coach Rene Weiler wide acclaim, although the team suffered a minor setback when they tasted their defeat under the Swiss, losing 1-0 to Tunisia’s Etoile Sahel in their opening game of the African Champions League group stage.

They recovered with a 2-1 home win over Sudanese giants Al-Hilal and will be looking to continue their perfect domestic run at the expense of a struggling Degla outfit.

Degla are known for their swift passing game under Greek coach Takis Gonias but their defensive frailties often hamper them.

They made a poor start to the season, collecting just three points from six matches and conceding eight goals.

In addition to long-term absentees Mohamed Mahmoud and Mahmoud Metwalli, Ahly will also miss Tunisian left-back Ali Maaloul as he still nurses an injury.
