The Football Association received a letter from the Confederation of African Football (CAF) stating that the date for the Zamalek and Congolese Mazembe meeting will be presented in the fifth round of the group stage of the African Champions League..
El Kef decided to present the match 24 hours, to be held on January 24, instead of on the 25th of the same month in Al-Salam Stadium.
The Zamalek fans are watching the expected confrontation between the teams of Zamalek and El Gouna, which is scheduled for the fifth on Wednesday evening in the framework of the 13th round of the Premier League at El Gouna Stadium.
Zamalek team seeks in this confrontation to continue a series of positive results in the league in order to crawl towards the top after losing important points.
While the El Gouna team aspires to achieve a positive result for the white team in order to correct its positions in the league table, especially since the last confrontation between them witnessed the loss of the white two important points in the last season to reduce its chances of winning the league title.
The French coach Patrice Carteron, the technical manager of the Zamalek team, settled on the same formation as the recent ZESCO match in the African Champions League, in light of the high level of the team, and some stars such as the Moroccans Mohamed Onajem and Ashraf Ben Sharky shine, as well as the understanding that appeared on the defense line represented by the duo Mahmoud Alaa And Mahmoud Hamdi Al-Wensh, however, the right-back center in Zamalek remains the chronic headache of Carteron at the present time, as the duo Hazem Imam and the young Ahmed Eid entered a competition to enter the basic formation, after Hazem Emam returned from injury and participated in the ZESCO match, as well as the good level presented by a Hamad Eid during his participation with the first team since his recent escalation from the junior sector to solve the Yemeni front crisis after the departure of Hamdi Al-Naqaz and the termination of his contract with the club, but the technical staff wants to relieve Hazem Imam in local confrontations as much as possible so that he is permanently ready to be present in the team’s matches in the championship African which will be decided in the technical lecture today.
Carteron is expected to push with a formation that includes: Muhammad Abu Jabal in the goalkeeping front, in front of him the quadruple Hazem Imam, Mahmoud Alaa, Mahmoud Al Wensh and Mohamed Abdel Shafi, and in the center Tariq Hamid and Ferjani Sassi, the attacking trio Ashraf bin Sharqi, Muhammad Onajim, Youssef Obama and the forward striker Mustafa Muhammad.
