Egyptian giants Al-Ahly do not know where they will host Tanzanians Young Africans -- just three days before a crucial CAF Champions League clash. Crowd trouble at a recent African fixture has led Cairo authorities to ban the 'Red Devils' from playing in the capital city. Record eight-time African champions Ahly reacted by trying to secure a venue in second city Alexandria for the first round, second leg qualifier.
