Match K.O at 21:00 Cairo Local Time | 13:00 ET Canada- USA
Venue: Petrosport stadium

Zamalek were given a boost by the disqualification of one of their challengers in the African Champions League Group B and they are aware a home win over South Africa’s Mamelodi Sundowns on Sunday will put them on the verge of their first semi-final spot in 11 years.

Algeria’s ES Setif were kicked out of the continent’s premier club competition after crowd troubles ruined their opening game against Sundowns last month, and with Zamalek claiming a 1-0 victory away to Nigeria’s Enyimba, the Egyptians’ task of booking a last-four berth is not that difficult in a three-team group.

Zamalek last reached the semis in 2005 but a recent revival, which saw them win the Egyptian Premier League in 2015 for the first time in more than a decade, suggests they can challenge for the Champions League this time around.

They face a Sundowns side who atoned for the annulment of their win over Setif to defeat Enyimba 2-1 at home, leaving the Nigerians at the bottom with no points.

The match will take place at Cairo’s Petrosport Stadium amid confusion over whether ordinary fans will be allowed to attend the game.

Outspoken chairman Mortada Mansour insisted only club members will be able to buy tickets, infuriating the team’s die-hard supporters who vowed to defy his orders.
