Al Ahly will compete in the Club World Cup. The Egyptians, who won the CAF Champions League, know their opponents. Al Ahly will face the Mexican side CF Monterrey in the second round. The competition takes place from 3 to 12 February 2022 in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
If they win that match, the Egyptians will face Copa Libertadores winners Palmeiras. They could then face Chelsea in the final. Pitso Mosimane's side will no doubt be looking to improve on last year's performance. Al Ahly finished third in the tournament.
