Zamalek faces tough mission in Angola

Sun, Mar. 3, 2019
CAIRO - 3 March 2019: Zamalek's coach, Christian Gross, settled on the starting line-up which will face Petro Atletico.

Zamalek is hosted by Angola's champion at Estádio 11 de Novembro to play in the fourth round of the CAF Confederation Cup on Sunday at 6 p.m.

Gross chose most of the starting elements including Mahmoud Abdel Aziz who will substitute the absent Tarek Hamed due to the accumulation of yellow cards.

Goalkeepers: Mahmoud Abdel Rahim
Defense: Hamdi Nagguez - Mahmoud Abdul Ghani - Mahmoud Hamdi "Al Wensh" - Abdullah Gomaa
Midfielders: Mahmoud Abdel Aziz - Ferjani Sassi - Ibrahim Hassan - Youssef Ibrahim "Obama" - Hamid Ahdad or Zizo
Forward: Khaled Boutaib
Zamalek suffered last Sunday night against the Angolan team in Cairo and they almost lost the game 1-0, but Youssef Obama secured the draw for Zamalek minutes before the final whistle.

The draw kept Zamalek's chances to reach the second round alive but the team needs to gain as many points as they can at the remaining games.

Gor Mahia leads the group with six points, two points ahead of Algeria’s NA Hussein Dey and Petro Atletico who share the second place, while Zamalek sits at the bottom of the group with two points from two draws at home and a 4-2 loss in Kenya to Gor Mahia.
