CAIRO: Al-Gaish are likely to be the team facing Al Ahly in the Egyptian Super Cup next month.
An Egyptian Football Association (EFA) member informed FilGoal.com that the association will be forced to get Al-Gaish, who finished fourth in the league last season, to face Al Ahly.
Al Ahly clinched the two top titles – the league and the cup – last season, but Zamalek, which finished second in both competitions, withdrew from the Super Cup clash.
Moreover, the league s third-placed team Ismaili will be in Nigeria to face Kwara United in the African Confederation Cup at the same timing of the Super Cup game, scheduled for Aug. 9.
Thus, Al-Gaish will be entering the Super Cup contest in an attempt to win their first ever trophy.
Meanwhile, the EFA are unlikely to impose a fine on Zamalek for pulling out of the game, as the team was just the runner-up last season.
