Zamalek suffer another defence blow ahead Ahly clash
Zamalek defender Salah Soliman has been ruled out of the squad for Sunday's clash with Ahly in the Champions League quarterfinal with a muscle injury.
"Salah Soliman has a muscle injury and needs at least three days of rest and one week of rehab,'' Zamalek's Dr Ayman Farid told the club's official website on Thursday.
Soliman's injury, and the suspension of defender Hany Said, limits the options of Zamalek's coach Hassan Shehata before the derby.
Zamalek's new signing Hamada Tolba, who joined the White Knights last Sunday, and team's international defender Mahmoud Fathallah are the only defenders in the squad.

The Cairo club will face Ahly at the Military Academy Stadium behind closed doors due to lingering security concerns in Egypt.

The convenient marriage between Iran and the Arab left would have been unthinkable only a few years ago, given the traditional ideological paradoxes between patriarchal Persian Shiism, on the one hand, and leftist orthodoxy on the other.Indeed, a casual viewer of Hizbullah's Al-Manar television, or the Iranian-funded Al-Mayadin TV, these days would probably think that the two Shia propaganda
