Ahly Cairo will look to improve their chances of winning the Egyptian Premier League title as they welcome Ghazl Al Mahalla at Al Salam stadium on Wednesday.
The home side heads into this clash four points off the top of the table. However, they have a game in hand on the two teams above them.
The club from the country’s capital are unbeaten in six league matches, but four of the matches have finished in draws.
Last season’s runners-up and country’s most successful team drew 2-2 against reigning champions Zamalek, who are also the current league leaders in their previous league outings in the top flight.
The visitors have endured a mixed start to their campaign in the Egyptian top-flight, picking up 25 points from their 21 league matches this season.
They head into this clash on the back of a highly inconsistent recent run of form in the league. Ghazl Al Mahalla have won just one of their last six games in the Egyptian top flight.
