Nigeria international Junior Ajayi has been named in Al Ahly’s starting XI for the CAF Champions League fixture with Simba S.C.
The 36 Lion product will play at the left hand side of attack.
Holders Ahly will be facing a tough mission in securing an early qualification bid when they face stiff opponents Simba S.C. of Tanzania in the second round of the Champions League Group Stage on Tuesday.
The Tanzanian side will be hosting the Cairo giants at the National Stadium in a do-or-die mission for the two sides, both of whom aim to continue their strong start in the prestigious competition Group Stage.
Playing away from home, Ahly’s mission will not be an easy one, especially after seeing their hosts beat strong rivals Vita Club of DR Congo 1-0 away from home in the Group Stage opening game last week.
The nine-time African Champions Ahly kicked off the six-match Group Stage campaign by defeating Sudan’s Al-Merrikh 3-0 last week at home to get in the driver’s seat of Group A with three points, sharing the same points with group opponents Simba.
Ahly: Mohamed El-Shennawi, Mohamed Hani, Yasser Ibrahim, Badr Banoun, Mahmoud Wahid, Aliou Dieng, Hamdy Fathy, Akram Tawfik, Mahmoud Abdel-Moneam, Junior Ajayi, Walter Bwalya
