CAIRO – 23 April 2018: Egyptian Football Association Referee committee announced on Monday that Norwegian referee, Ola Hobber Nilsen, will take charge of the clash between Zamalek and Pyramids at the Egyptian League.

Nilsen will be assisted by Tom Harald and Geir Oskar while Kristoffer Hagenes will act as fourth official.

Both teams are sharing the top of the league 60 points each but Pyramids played two more games, while Al-Ahly comes third at the table with 58 points.

Zamalek’s winger, Mahmoud Abdelmonem known as Kahraba, and Hamdi Naguez returned to the team squad after he missed the 2-0 victory over Ismaily.

On the other hand, Zamalek manager, Christian Gross, ruled the team Moroccan duo, Khaled Boutaib and Hamid Ahaddad, due to injuries.

Pyramids, led by Argentinean manager, Ramon Diaz, hope to continue their amazing run at the League after they defeated Al-Ahly 1-0 on Thursday night.

Diaz faced Gross three times before during their time at the Saudi Arabian League when Diaz was Al Hilal manager while Gross was coaching Al-Ahli Jeddah: Al-Hilal won two games while the third game ended with a draw.

The game starts on 8:00 pm.
