80' Ferjani Sassi brings Zamalek level with a brilliant curler! A fine move sees Hazem Emam's pass roll into the path of Sassi following a clever dummy from Zizo to send a superb first-timer into the bottom corner past the motionless El-Shennawi.
79' Zamalek also make a double substitution. Winger Eslam Gaber replaces the ineffective Youssef Ibrahim and left-back Mohamed Abdel-Shafi replaces Ahmed Fatouh in a like-for-like substitution.

The match is underway
Starting lineups:
Ahly: Mohamed El-Shennawi, Mohamed Hani, Badr Benoun, Rami Rabia, Ayman Ashraf, Amr El-Sulaya, Aliou Dieng, Mohamed 'Afsha' Magdi, Hussein El-Shahat, Taher Mohamed, Mohamed Sherif
Zamalek: Mohamed Awad, Hamza Mathlouthi, Mahmoud Alaa, Mahmoud El-Wensh, Ahmed Fatouh, Tarek Hamed, Ferjani Sassi, Ahmed Zizo, Achraf Bencharki, Mahmoud Shikabala, Youssef Ibrahim
20:55 Ahly stick to their favourite line-up of recent matches. Mohamed Sherif, who netted a double in the team's 2-1 win over Zamalek last month, spearheads their attack after being rested in the previous 2-1 victory over Ittihad.
20:50 Zamalek play without an out-and-out striker, with natural deep-lying forward Youssef Ibrahim introduced as the lone frontman. Veteran playmaker Mahmoud Shikabala, who has been in superb form recently, makes the starting line-up.
19:45 The last Cairo derby saw Ahly win 2-1 in the reverse league fixture last month, having outplayed Zamalek in the first half. Zamalek notably improved after the break but could not find a vital equaliser.
18:30 On the other hand French coach Patrice Carteron has yet to decide on whether to field Youssef Obama or deploy Shikabala - who has been in excellent shape recently - in a central role.
17:30 The return of Moroccan defender Badr Benoun - who has been marshalling Ahly's defence since the beginning of the season - and Ayman Ashraf has given a great boost and composure to the team.
16:30 Egyptian referee Amin Omar will be in charge of Monday's Cairo derby between Ahly and Zamalek, while international official Mahmoud Ashour will be the Video Assistant Referee, with Mahmoud Bassiouni as an assistant.
15:30 Both sides have been inconsistent lately, dropping points against modest opponents. Zamalek lead Ahly by four points on top of the league table but the latter still have two games in hand.
14:30 Ahly and Zamalek are suffering the adverse effects of a tight fixture schedule that left them with tired legs. Ahly, who unlike Zamalek are still in the African Champions League, in particular have been the victims of a string of injuries that hit their key players.
13:30 The EFA ignored pleas from Ahly to bring in a foreign referee, taking heart from Mahmoud El-Banna's convincing performance in last month's derby, which was devoid of any glaring refereeing errors.
Referee: Amin Omar
Venue: Cairo Stadium
