Al Ahly (3rd)
Last five games: DDWWD
The most successful teams in Africa have been nothing short of mediocre in the past few weeks as they struggled to win games. They trail Pyramids by six points in the second spot with two outstanding games. It will be shameful if they fail to appear in the CAF Champions League later this year.
Having failed in their attempt to challenge Zamalek for the title, they are now faced with the task of finishing behind them.
The Red Eagles have drawn three games in the last five matches, with their last game ending in a toothless (0-0) draw. Despite the home being a man down in the 82nd minute, the visitors failed to capitalise as points were shared.
Unlike Al Ahly, their recent predicament has not been translated into their results. They have failed to score in three out of the last five games.
Al Ahly remain the only unbeaten side at home this season with eleven wins and three draws.
Last five games: WWDWL
The visiting side have lost three in the previous fourteen matches; the defeats came against Zamalek (2-1), Almasry (4-1), and a (0-4) against Pyramids FC. They are 10th on the log, seven points above the relegation zone, with an outstanding match.
They earned a vital point against Pharco on matchday 28 when they settled for a draw as both teams failed to find the back of the net. They defeated Al Ittihad on matchday 29 to secure their ninth win of the season. However, they stumbled on a disappointing defeat against Almasry. Although they were down to ten men in the 14th minute, I still believe that's not enough reason to concede four goals. They were not good enough in their last match and must be at their best to salvage a point here.
Ismaily have won four, drawn four and lost seven times in the last fifteen away matches.
