Al Ahly goalkeeper Sherif Ekramy says he is wary of a wounded Nkana.
The eight-time African champions host fellow CAF Confederation Cup group stage debutants on May 17 at Petrosport Stadium in a 19h00 kickoff.
The Pharaohs and Al Ahly goalkeeper said they will not underestimate Nkana despite the Zambian clubs' last visit to Cairo on March 30 ending in a 5-0 demolition at the hands of the home-sides’ arch-rivals Zamalek in the 2014 CAF Champions League last 16.
"The Nkana game will be hard. We must focus on making a good start to this round, for the sake of Ahly's image continentally," Ekramy told Ahramonline.
Meanwhile, the legendary three-time Africa Cup winning goalkeeper has just signed an extended three -year deal with Al Ahly that will see the 30-year-old stay at the Cairo giants until 2017.
