LIVE: Al Ahly v AS Sonidep | CAF Champions League

Title holders Ahly are expected to navigate an easy passage to the African Champions League group stage when they host Niger’s Champions Sonidep on Tuesday in the return leg of round 32 at Ahly El-Salam Stadium.

Following their 1-0 away win two weeks ago, the nine-time African Champions should have a walk in the park in Cairo against Sonidep, who are making only their third appearance in the Champions League and did not manage to reach the last 16 in their previous two participations.

Coach Pitso Mosimane would welcome the return of playmaker Mahmoud “Afsha” Magdi, forward Mahmoud “Kahraba” Abdel-Moneim and midfielder Akram Tawfik, who have recovered from the coronavirus.

Also, winger Taher Mohamed Taher resumed full trainings on Monday after being left out with a bruised rib.

However, defenders Mohamed Hani, Rami Rabia and key midfielder Amr El-Sulaya remain unavailable for the game as they have not fully recovered. Suspended winger Hussein El-Shahat will also not participate. In addition, Mosimane has decided to rest captain and international keeper Mohamed El Shennawi during this game.

Ahly will be looking to put on a strong show to boost the team’s confidence and moral following a disappointing scoreless draw against Wadi Degla last Friday.
