Egypt’s Champions League representatives Ahli and Ismaili face stern challenges against JS Kabylie and Heartland in a decisive Group B day.
Egyptian champions Ahli are out to save their continental hopes against highflying leaders Kabylie of Algeria at Cairo Stadium.
An encounter surrounded by fears of unrest following Ahli’s unpleasant trip to Tizi Ouzou a fortnight ago, ending with a 1-0 defeat.
While the Algerians need a point to reach the semi-finals, Ahli know that anything less than a victory would place them into an ordeal.
Hossam Al-Badri’s side havenít enjoyed the best of starts this season, having uncommonly dropped four points from their first three league games.
