In an official statement, Nejmeh has announced that Khaled Takaji has received an injury during training and therefore could miss the derby.
Khaled Takaji is the second top scorer in the history of the derby with 8 goals, behind the maestro Moussa Hojeij with 11. Takaji also participated in all games this season, scoring 4 goals and 6 assists.
Nejmeh needs to win against Ansar in order to win the title. Other than Takaji, Nejmeh will miss out on Maher Sabra due to yellow cards accumulation. Mehdi Zein and Mohammad Ghaddar might not be totally fit also, after they were subbed out in the first half against Akhaa Ahli Aley. The game will take place this Saturday at Fouad Chehab Stadium.
