Our team rarely pays attention to the African championships. Today we are going to make an exception as we are presenting you the derby match from the Egyptian Premier League between the champions of Al Ahly and Pyramids. The game is set to start at 20:00 GMT 0 at Cairo International Stadium.

8 Games Less

The team of Al Ahly has been engaged with two tournaments at the same time – the domestic league and CAF Champions League. Al Ahly reached the final of the CAF Champions League and it is set to face Kaizer Chiefs on 17th, July. In the domestic league, Al Ahly is placed 3rd but there are 8 matches in advance to be played due to the engagements of the team in CAF.

2 Tournaments

Pyramids is another team engaged in 2 tournaments. Pyramids played a roller-coaster 2nd leg with Raja Casablanca in the semi-finals of the CAF Confederation Cup – the 2nd most prestigious cup tournament in Africa. Pyramids was eliminated in a dramatic penalty shoot-out and now the team should focus on their performance in the domestic league.

Final Thoughts

Al Ahly is determined to cut the lead of Zamalek and El Masry and reach the top of the Egyptian Premier League. We are expecting a win for Al Ahly.
