PREVIEW Stade Malien vs Ahly
Ebimobowei has recovered from his latest injury, but coach Fathi Mabrouk has not considered him fit enough for the tricky trip to Mali.
The place of the former Bayelsa United striker in the Red Devils of Cairo is increasingly being threatened as Ahly have now signed Gabon striker Malick Evouna from Moroccan club Wydad Casablanca.
Ethiopia star striker Saladin Said is also with Ahly.
Ahly are current holders of the Confederation Cup and they began the group stage of this year’s competition on a bright note by dismissing Esperance of Tunisia 3-0 at home.
Stade Malien, winners of the competition in 2009, lost 1-0 their opening group game away at Etoile du Sahel.
