CAIRO-25 September 2021: Al Ahly's head coach Pitso Mosimane announced the team's starting line-up for the game against Enppi in the second round of the Egyptian Cup.
The team's midfielder Ahmed Abdelkader will make his debut for the Red Eagles tonight after he returned to the team after spending last season on a loan to Smouha.
Mosimane made four changes to the team's starting line-up that lost the domestic Super Cup match against Tala'ea El Gaish last Tuesday.
Al Ahly's starting line-up for the game: Mohamed El Shenawy, Ayman Ashraf, Badr Benoun, Akram Tawfik, Ali Maaloul, Aliou Dieng, Amr El Soulia, Mahmoud Kahraba, Ahmed Abdelkader, Mohamed Magdy Afsha and Mohamed Sherif.

Al Ahly players hope to bounce back following the team's poor run in the domestic competitions last season as they lost the Egyptian League title to their rivals, Zamalek, for the first time since 2015.
The poor run continued at the start of this season after losing the Egyptian Super Cup to El Gaish.
