Group A leaders Pyramids FC have accumulated the most points after three rounds of fixtures, with the Egyptian club boasting a perfect 3/3 record.

Fresh from a hard fought 2-1 win over league rivals Al-Masry who incidentally are second on the log with six points, big spending Pyramids face the same opponents again on Sunday in what has been tipped as one of the star matches of the weekend.

Pyramids and Al-masry already have 9 and 6 points to occupy first and second position in the group.
