Al-Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane laid out the features of the basic formation of the team’s match against Algeria’s ES Setif, which will be held this evening, Saturday, in the second leg of the African Champions League semi-final.
Al-Ahly has the advantage of winning the first leg 4-0 at the expense of ES Setif, and has the opportunity to qualify even in the event of a loss by less than 4 goals.
Yalla Kora reporter learned that Hamdi Fathi participated in part of the training on Friday and will undergo a final technical and medical test today, Saturday, to resolve his position on his presence in the ES Setif match.
The last hours witnessed the confusion of Pitso Mosimane in the formation in which he will fight today, especially between returning to 3-4-3 or continuing in the 4-2-3-1 method, and in all cases, the technical staff wanted to play with Mohamed Hani alongside Yasser Ibrahim and Ayman Ashraf with the payment of Karim Fouad as right-back, but he retreated.
The expected formation was as follows:
Goalkeeper: Mohamed El-Shennawy.
Defense lines: Muhammad Hani, Yasser Ibrahim, Ayman Ashraf, Ali Maaloul.
Midfield: Hamdi Fathi, Aliou Diang.
Attacking midfield: Hussein El-Shahat, Ahmed Abdel-Qader, Taher Mohamed Taher.
Striker: Percy Tau.
