Venue: Al Ahly Stadium

Referee: Said Hamza

Al Ahly will host Aswan at Al Ahly Stadium in the final matchday of the Egyptian Premier League tonight “Friday” after losing their hopes of keeping the domestic title for the sixth time.

Al Ahly president Mahmoud El-Khatib has publicly backed his club’s head coach Pitso Mosimane after the Red Devils failed to defend their Egyptian Premier League title on Tuesday night, as bitter Cairo rivals Zamalek clinched the 13th title.

Khatib showed appreciation for Ahly’s effort playing catch-up in matches and points, in a season already compressed by the effects of Covid-19 and where the Red Devils ended third in the Fifa Club World Cup and retained their Caf Champions League trophy.

After Ahly’s fatigue apparently caught up with them with a third draw in five matches, 3-3 away against El Gouna, and Zamalek took an unassailable lead by beating El Entag El Harby 2-0 at home, El Khatib said Mosimane deserved to “be honored”.

“We fully trust coach Pitso Mosimane, [sporting director] Sayed Abdelhafiz and our coaching, medical, administrative staffs. You deserve to be honored for what you did in the last period and we are working on that,” the president was quoted as saying on Ahly’s Twitter account
