Venue: Borg El-Arab stadium, Alexandria
Referee: Mustafa Gerbaal

Ahly, whose Egyptian Premier League hegemony was disrupted last season, will be looking to send out a statement of intent when they meet Talae El-Geish in the Egyptian Super Cup on Tuesday.

The Red Devils failed in their bid to clinch a sixth straight league title, with perennial Cairo rivals Zamalek crowned champions for the first time since 2015.

Ahly won the lucrative African Champions League for a second straight season but losing a domestic title they rarely surrender still left a bitter taste in their mouth.

South African coach Pitso Mosimane now have a chance to make some amends and kick off the new season in the best possible way, with Ahly overwhelming favourites to win a record-extending 12th Super Cup.

This Super Cup edition was due to be played last year but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Ahly were domestic double champions in the 2019-20 season, with El-Geish finishing as runners-up in the Egypt Cup.
