Ahli coach Hossam Al-Badri left Ahmed Hassan out of the Red Devils' squad for their league game with Ittihad on Sunday for the Cairo derby's sake.

The veteran midfielder is suffering from fatigue and Al-Badri decided to give him some rest ahead of the anticipated game with Zamalek next weekend, according to Ahli's official site.

Winger Sayed Moawad, goalie Sherif Ekrami and Angolan wide man Gilberto were all ruled out through injury.

Moawad feels pains in his toes, which urged Al-Badri to leave him out of the squad.

On the other hand, striker Emad Meteb will miss the game due to automatic suspension.

Outcast forward Ahmed Belal was included in the 19-man list along with out-of-favor trio Francis Doe, Afrotto and Osama Hosni.

Ahli's squad:

Goalkeepers: Ahmed Adel, Ramzi Saleh.

Defenders: Wael Gomaa, Sherif Abdul-Fadil, Ahmed Fathi, Ahmed Ali, Ayman Ashraf.

Midfielders: Abdullah Farouk, Shehab Ahmed, Ahmed Shokri, Mostafa Shebeita, Hossam Ashour, Afrotto, Mohamed Barakat, Mohamed Abou-Treika.

Strikers: Ahmed Belal, Osama Hosni, Mohamed Fadl, Francis Doe.
