CAIRO-13 February 2021: Zamalek’s head coach Jaime Pacheco said that the team created many chances in the match against Algeria’s MC Alger but the players failed to use them.

Zamalek were held to a goalless draw by the Algerian giants at Cairo International stadium in the opening match of the CAF Champions League group stage.

“It was a tough game between two big teams. We created many chances but we failed to use them.” Pacheco said in the post-match press conference.

Zamalek came close from scoring during the match but all the White Knights’ attempts missed the target.

Pacheco added “We had a good game and we need to keep improving.”

Zamalek play in group D alongside Teungueth from Senegal, Tunisia's Espérance and Algeria's MC Alger.

Asked about keeping the team’s Moroccan winger, Achraf Bencherki, on the bench and using him as a substitute, Pacheco said “He just recovered from injury and he did not train with the team so I preferred to use him in the second half.”

The White Knights are set to face Teungueth in Senegal on 23 February in Matchday 2 of the group stage.
