The Petrosport Stadium in Cairo will stage the upcoming derby between Zamalek and Al Ahly.
The Egyptian Football Association originally stated that the match between the Cairo giants would be played at the Borg El Arab Stadium outside of Alexandria.
However, they have since taken the decision to return to the derby to the capital city after obtaining permission from the country’s security forces.
The Cairo derby will be played on Thursday, December 29, with kick-off set for 19h00 CAT. Zamalek are the host side.
The last time the teams met at the Petrosport Stadium, the White Knights claimed victory thanks to a brace from Basem Morsi.
Al Ahly currently top the Egyptian Premier League standings with 42 points from 16 matches, while Zamalek are third on 34 points from 14 matches.
