Following an agreement between the country's sports and interior ministers, some 35,000 spectators will be able to watch the match in the 60,000-seater stadium, reports Xinhua.

Earlier, due to security concerns, only 27,000 spectators were allowed but after fresh discussions, the figure was increased by 8,000.

The first leg, which was played in Alexandria in Egypt last week, ended in a 1-1 draw.
