Al-Ahly and Zamalek are exploring the crescent of the cup with my excellent match b


Al-Ahly and Zamalek, most of the Republic’s clubs who won the Egyptian Cup, return to try again to win the title, the oldest among the live Egyptian soccer tournaments so far.

Al-Ahly is the team that wins the most in the cup, just as it is in the league championship, but Al-Ahmar’s success is slightly less in the cup championship, as it won only 37 titles compared to 42 in the league championship.

Al-Ahmar won the Egyptian Cup title in the historic past season, during which he also won the Egyptian League, the African Champions League, and the FIFA Club World Cup bronze, and is still targeting the five-year term in Egypt and Africa.

Pitso Mosimane’s men face the Al-Nasr team, which is part of the second division “Premier B”, hoping to reach the final price of the tournament and start the road to the title No. 38.

On the other hand, Zamalek seeks to heal its wounds with the cup title after leaving the CAF Champions League very early in the group stage, which also witnessed the beginning of his participation.

The white plays against Haras El Hedoud, which fell last season to “Premier B” after failing to score any points against the runners-up of last season’s League, who are returning to face them in the Cup again.

The men of French coach Patrice Carteron are determined to win the cup championship this season and try to continue at the top of the league until the end to claim an exceptional double that did not happen much in the history of Zamalek.

Al-Ahly returned his suspended player after the end of his sentence, to enter the match list and be ready to participate in front of Al-Nasr, hoping that he would gain the confidence of his South African coach Pitso Musimane again.

The defending champion loses ten players in the face of Al-Nasr, most notably his first goalkeeper Muhammad Al-Shennawi, and his defenders Yasser Ibrahim, Ayman Ashraf, Ali Maaloul, Mahmoud Wahid and Muhammad Hani, in addition to the midfield and offensive stars Amr Al-Soliya, Hamdi Fathy, Hussein Al-Shahat and Junior Ajay.

Zamalek is also suffering from the absence of its players, Abdullah Jumaa, Mohamed Ashraf “Roqa”, Mahmoud Hamdi “Alwas” and Mahmoud Jensh, but the last duo was excluded by a technical decision by coach Patrice Carteron. (Zamalek list from here)

Al-Ahly and Zamalek consider the cup matches against second-class people as a strong preparation for a return to the Premier League struggle, which is temporarily occupied by Al-Ahly, 6 points ahead of Al-Ahly, who played 3 games less, giving him the lead by 3 points.
