LIVE: Ethiopia’s Wolaitta Dicha v Zamalek | CAF Confederation Cup 2018
Zamalek manager Ehab Galal will be looking to overcome his side’s little experience in African competitions when they kick off their CAF Confederation Cup campaign with a visit to Ethiopia’s Welayta Dicha in Hawassa on Wednesday.
Having finished third in the league standings last season, five-time Champions League holders Zamalek will be taking part in Africa’s secondary competition – which they have yet to win – this time around.
The Whites will be taking heart from their recent fine form in the league, having grabbed six consecutive wins to climb to Champions League-qualifying second spot of the table.
Manager Galal, however, remains wary of his side’s little experience in African competitions, with most of the players arriving from low-profile league clubs, but vowed to overcome that hurdle.
