Al Ahly & Downs Line-Ups Announced

Can Mamelodi Sundowns beat Pitso Mosimane and finally stop their horrible run in Egypt? Here is how the two side’s line-up.

Masandawana enter the game on a good run of form, but have lost all of their previous three games at Al Ahly, without scoring a single goal.

Al Ahly, meanwhile, have somewhat struggled in the Egyptian premier League recently, collecting just 11 points from their last seven games.

Both sides are meeting each other at this stage for a third consecutive season, with each team progressing once in the previous two ties.

The defending champions have won all of their previous three home games against Downs without conceding a single goal. 

Mosimane’s men have reached the quarter-final stage for a fifth successive campaign, progressing from three of the previous four, with Downs being the only side to eliminate them back in 2018/19. 

Downs have failed to win any of their last five knockout games in the competition, drawing two and losing three, with their last victory being that famous 5-0 win over Al Ahly.

Here is how they line up:

Al Ahly XI: El Shenawy, Ayman, Benoun Rabia, Hany, Dieng, El Soulig, Afsha, Taher, El Shaha, Sherif

Sundowns XI: Onyango, Nascimento, Lebusa, Modiba, Morena, Coetzee, Mkhulise, Maboe, Motupa, Sirino, Shalulile
