Al Ahly will be at home for the first leg of the Champions League final against Esperance Sportive de Tunis.
The Egyptian giants are targeting their ninth Caf Champions League trophy, and look to make amends after losing the final in the previous edition.
In previous years, Al Ahly appeared to struggle when playing at home first, and this was evident as they lost to Wydad Casablanca in similar fashion last season.
The encounter will also offer coach Patrice Carteron an opportunity to lift Africa's Premier club competition.
The French manager only joined the Pharaohs at the start of the current campaign, but he has been able to emulate some of Al Ahly's best managers in the short space of time.
Meanwhile, ES Tunis have not won the competition since 2011. The first time they lifted the Champions League was 24 years ago, but they well to reach the final this year.
Last season, Moin Chabani's side failed to get past the quarter-final stages, and the Al Ahly encounter couldn't have come at the right time.
WHEN IS THE FIRST LEG FINAL?
The Caf Champions League final will kick off at 21h00 CAT on Friday, the 02nd of November 2018.
