Egyptian League Live: Ahly v Baladeyet El-Mahalla | EPL 2023/24

K.O. 19:00 Cairo local time | 12:00 ET

Venue: Cairo International Stadium

Referee: Ahmed El-Ghandour

After advancing to the CAF Champions League quarter-finals, Ahly will pivot their attention to the domestic league, gearing up to take on newcomers Baladeyet El-Mahalla in a postponed league match at Cairo Stadium tonight.

As the reigning champions, Ahly currently occupies the 10th spot on the league table with 14 points. However, they have eight games in reserve and are resolute in their quest to ascend the ranks and defend their title.

Enppi currently holds the top position on the table with 26 points, but they have competed in eight more matches than Ahly.

Ahly’s most recent domestic league outing was on November 28, 2023, where they concluded with a goalless stalemate against Smouha.

This result came after another 1-1 draw against Gouna.

Buoyed by their recent triumphs in Africa, Ahly are keen to resume their winning streak in the Egyptian league.

Regrettably, Ahly will be without their reliable defender, Yasser Ibrahim, who suffered an injury during their 1-0 victory over Medeama in the CAF Champions League.

Nevertheless, all other players, including the winter acquisition Wessam Abou Ali, are fit and ready for the match.

Conversely, Baladeyet El-Mahalla is anticipated to provide a formidable test for the reigning champions.

The newcomers have displayed promising performances in their previous 13 matches, notching wins against Modern Future, Arab Contractors, and Pharco.

They also managed a 2-2 draw against Pyramids FC, placing them 13th in the league standings.

Under the stewardship of coach Ahmed Abdel-Raouf, Baladeyet El-Mahalla has embraced an offensive strategy, scoring 16 goals, making them the second-best attacking team in the league, trailing only Masry, ZED FC, and the NBE, who have all scored 17 goals.

However, their defense has proven to be susceptible, conceding 26 goals, the highest in the league.

Abdel-Raouf will need to adjust his tactics against the defending champions, as Ahly possesses the capability to exploit any bold approach.
