Al Ahly Name Strong Squad For African Champions League Final Against Kaizer Chiefs

Al Ahly have announced the squad that will take on Kaizer Chiefs in the African Champions League final on Saturday.

The Red Eagles will take on the South African side in Morocco, hoping to win the title for a record tenth-time in history.

Pitso Mosimane has three major fitness doubts ahead of the showpiece final, with Walid Soliman, Mohamed Mahmoud and Karim Walid picking injuries in the recent games on domestic season.

Soliman suffered a hamstring injury that he picked from a training season two weeks ago and was expected to be out for several weeks.

Mohamed Muhmoud has been performing his rehabilitation program to be fully recovered from his injury following a knee injury.

But speaking before the journey to Morocco, Mosimane suggested that the duo of Soliman and Karim will be available.

Al Ahly reached the African Champions League final for the second consecutive season after a sweeping 4-0 aggregate victory over Esperance.

Meanwhile, Kaizer Chiefs booked their place in the final after they secured a 1-0 aggregate win over Wydad Athletic Club of Morocco.

Ahly squad in full:

Goalkeepers: Mohamed El Shenawy, Ali Lotfy, Mostafa Shobier
