After formally losing the league title this season, Champions League runners-up Zamalek will be setting their eyes on Africa’s premier competition this time around.

Zamalek qualified for the group stage after beating Nigeria’s Enugu Rangers 5-3 on aggregate, a 4-1 first-leg home winthat was followed by a somewhat nervy 2-1 defeat in Nigeria.

CAPS, on the other side, were keen to stress that they are not going to be the outsiders of group B – which also includes Algeria’s USM Alger alongside Al-Ahli Tripoli.

The Zimbabwean league champions sprang a surprise in the tournament’s round of 32 when they eliminated five-time African champions TP Mazembe on the away-goal rule.

CAPS forward Abbas Amidu, who scored the crucial away goal in the 1-1 draw with Mazembe away from home, stated that his side are intent to make history again against Zamalek after ousting the Congolese giants the previous round.
