Due to a completely healthy group available to select from, El Entag El Harby boss Mokhtar Mokhtar does not have any fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this game.
For this match, we think that El Entag El Harby have it in them to score against this Al Ittihad lineup, but it probably won’t quite prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
Our selection here is for a very close game with a 2-1 win for Al Ittihad at the end of the 90 minutes. There shouldn’t be much in it, either way.
