Al Ahly have a powerful squad that recently arrived in South Africa, but there are a trio of players battling with injury less than 48 hours from kick-off, according to the KingFut website. Right-back Mohamed Hany, midfielder Hamdi Fathi and right-winger Hussein El-Shahat are all suffering muscle strains and their participation in the match is in doubt.

Below you can watch what Pitso had to say upon the team’s arrival:

Goalkeepers: Mohamed El-Shennawy, Ali Lotfy, Mostafa Shobeir.

Defenders: Rami Rabia, Yasser Ibrahim, Ayman Ashraf, Mohamed Abdelmonem, Mohamed Hany, Karim Fouad, Mahmoud Wahid, Ali Maaloul.

It’s sure to be an emotionally-charged match on Saturday, with Mosimane having been heckled, booed and sworn at when Al Ahly last clashed with his former team in South Africa the last time. Part of the disgraceful scenes also saw despicable and insulting posters held aloft as Mosimane and his team arrived in their team bus at the Lucas Moripe Stadium last May.
