Al-Ahly challenges the absences and surprises of the cup in front of the arsenal


Al-Ahly faces the Tarsana team this evening, Wednesday, in the round of 16 matches of the 2019/2020 Egypt Cup at the “Al-Ahly We Peace” stadium at 8:00 pm.

After winning the Egyptian League championship for the 42nd time in its history, Al-Ahly seeks to regain the Egyptian Cup title, which was absent from its coffers in the last two seasons, to consolidate its record in the 36th crowning times.

Al-Ahly managed to reserve its seat in the 16th round of the Egypt Cup after defeating Beni Suef 3-1 in the match that was held last year, specifically in December 2019, while Arsenal reached this role after Enppi was eliminated on penalties.

Al-Ahly suffers from several absences in the face of the arsenal, represented by Mahmoud Metwally, Rami Rabia, Karim Nedved, Walid Suleiman and Ahmed Al-Sheikh due to injury, Muhammad Mahmoud for lack of readiness, and Ali Lotfi for rehabilitation after recovering from the Corona virus.

Al-Ahly will also be absent from the main goalkeeper, Muhammad Al-Shennawi, for his rest, Ali Maaloul for his travel to Tunisia, Amr Al-Soliya and Ayman Ashraf for suspension, while Saleh Jumaa is still excluded for technical reasons.

In the absence of the goalkeeping duo Mohamed El-Shennawi and Ali Lotfi, the young goalkeeper, Mostafa Schubert, is the closest to participating in the arsenal.

On the other hand, the arsenal, led by its coach Shaker Abdel Fattah, is not living its best time, after it is threatened with relegation from the second division, where Al Shawakish occupies the penultimate rank in the second group despite the succession of coaches to lead the team.

The last confrontation between Al-Ahly and Al-Arsenal was two years ago when the two teams met in the 32nd round of the last edition of the 2018/2019 Egypt Cup on October 10, 2018, which ended with the victory of the Red Genie (3-2).

Referee Ahmed Jamal will manage tonight’s confrontation between Al-Ahly and the arsenal, and Mahmoud Abdel Sami and Khaled Ramadan will assist him, and Mohamed Mahmoud Abdullah is a fourth referee.

The Football Association succeeded in obtaining official approvals and approvals regarding the application of video technology in the Egypt Cup, and the binary referees committee chose Mohamed Abbas Kabil and Sabri Ibrahim as a video referee and assistant referee in the Al-Ahly and Arsenal meeting.

It is reported that the Arsenal match may be the last for Swiss Rene Fyler, the coach of Al-Ahly, if he decides to leave the beginning of next October due to special circumstances, as the Red Club announced in an official statement that it will determine the fate of the coach tomorrow, Thursday.
