The Portuguese coach of Zamalek, Jaime Pacheco, decided to push firmly to the right-back Imam of the team in the Masr Club match scheduled for November 21 in the Round of 8 in the Egypt Cup, in order to prepare him for the African final against Al-Ahly scheduled for 27 November after he recovered from the injury.
Hazem Imam, the right-back for Zamalek, became medically ready to participate in the matches after recovering from the injury he was suffering from, which is a strain in the front muscle, as the player completed the rehabilitation program that he underwent before the Moroccan Raja match in the second leg of the semi-finals of the African Champions League.
It is expected that Pacheco will pay the coach of Zamalek with Hazem Emam in the team’s next match against Masr Club, scheduled for November 21st in the 8th round of the Egypt Cup, to gain him fitness matches before the Al-Ahly confrontation scheduled for 27 of the same month in the African Champions League final.
On the other hand, the draw for the 32nd round of the African Champions League resulted in an easy confrontation for Zamalek, after the Confederation of African Football (CAF) held the preliminary round draw for the next edition of the African Champions League and the African Confederation at the Federation headquarters in Cairo in a closed manner in the presence of the Organizing Committee for Club Championships.
Zamalek will be drawn in the 32nd round in the face of the finalist from Chad’s champion Gazelle against Sayyaf Joubti, and the first leg matches of the 32nd round of the Champions League competition will be held on December 22 or 23, and the return matches will take place on January 5 or 6, 2021..
Neither Al-Ahly nor Zamalek will participate in the preliminary round of the African Champions League final, and with them are the Congolese clubs Mazembe, Moroccan Raja, South African Sundowns, Primeiro de Agosto of Angola, Houria of Guinean and Vita Club of Congo..
