Ex 36 Lion student Ajayi returns to boost Ahly ahead of clash with Sundowns

Pitso Mosimane has named his Al Ahly squad to face his former side Mamelodi Sundowns in the quarter-finals of the CAF Champions League.

The Red Devils host the reigning South African champions in Cairo for the first leg of their last eight tie.

The two sides met at this stage of the competition last season when Mosimane was still in charge of Sundowns, who ended up losing 3-1 on aggregate to the Red Devils.

Mosimane will be welcoming 36 Lion product Junior Ajayi back in the squad after a lengthy spell on the sidelines, although Akram Tawfik misses out.

The Red Devils come into the encounter on the back of a 1-1 draw against Zamalek in the Cairo Derby on Monday night.

Full squad:

Goalkeepers: Mohamed El-Shennawy, Ali Lotfy, Mostafa Shobier

Defenders: Badr Benoun, Mahmoud Wahid, Ahmed Ramadan Beckham, Mohamed Hany, Mohamed Metwally, Ramy Rabia, Yasser Ibrahim, Ayman Ashraf, Ahmed Nabil Kouka
