The Egyptian powerhouse are the current CAF Super Cup holders having beaten Moroccan side RS Berkane 2-0 in the most recent edition in 2019.

A win would be Mosimane’s third title having won it previously with Mamelodi Sundowns in 2017 after beating DR Congo’s TP Mazembe 1-0.

At stake for the Egyptian giants is a surprisingly relatively minor sum of $200 000 in prize money. The runners-up will take home $150 000 for their efforts.

Not only Al Ahly will enter the match in good form, but their squad has seen the return of several key players, including Mahmoud Kahraba and Mahmoud Metwally.

Ayman Ashraf and Ali Maaloul have also been confirmed in the squad despite suffering injuries during the Arab Cup.

However, Salah Mohsen has been ruled out while Bafana Bafana star Percy Tau has been included in the 29-man squad.
