Egyptian powerhouses Pyramids FC will face Morocco’s Champions Raja on Sunday in a tussle for top spot in Group D of the African Confederation Cup at the Mohamed V Stadium in Casablanca.

Pyramids FC, who reached the final last year, made a perfect start to their group stage campaign, claiming consecutive wins over Namungo and Nkana to move top on six points, on level with Raja.

“We want to maintain our winning streak. We are in a good form now and our objective is to win the title after reaching the final last year,” sporting director Hani Said was quoted as saying on the club’s Twitter account.

After a slow start to the season with new coach Rodolfo Arruabarrena, the big-spending club have found their rhythm, winning 8 out of their last 9 games in all competitions.

Captain and gifted playmaker Abdallah El Said has recovered from a lengthy injury and is ready to take part in the game.

Flamboyant winger Ramadan Sobhi, Pyramids’ mega summer signing, has been declared fit for the game after a minor muscle strain prevented him from playing Egypt in their recent African Cup of Nations qualifying games.

The doubleheader against Raja will decide the winner of the group, especially that the other two teams failed to bag any points so far.

Starting line-ups:

Pyramids: Sherif Ekramy, Osama Galal, Ali Gabr, Ahmed Mansour, Mohamed Hamdi, Nabil Emad, Omar Gaber, Mahmoud Hamada, Islam Eissa, Ramadan Sobhi, Mohamed Farouk
