CAIRO – 9 November 2017: Zamalek SC returns to start its journey in the 32nd round of Egypt`s Cup against Al-Minya in a game that will be held at Al-Salam stadium on Thursday at 08:00 p.m. (Cairo Local Time).
The White Knights are looking for a good debut in Egypt`s Cup as they were knocked out from the tournament last season in the semi-final against Al-Masry club.
Zamalek were the cup-holders for four consecutive years until Al-Ahly stopped their streak last season and achieved the title.
On the other hand, Al Minya aims to play a good match against the White giants. Mohamed Abdelkader, Al-Minya`s captain, leads his team in a difficult challenge but does not feel the confrontation’s enthusiasm like the others as he played many matches against big teams in the Egyptian League.
"We are motivated to play a good game against Zamalek, I do not feel afraid of confrontation. I have played in the Egyptian League for eight seasons," Abdelkader said.
The second division group is made up of 16 teams and the leader qualifies directly to the Egyptian League next season.
The winner of today’s match will meet the winner from Tanta & Haras El Hedoud game.
