Zamalek Suffers Shocking Defeat to Ethiopia’s Dicha 2-1 | CAF Confederation Cup

Egypt’s Zamalek suffered a stunning defeat on their opening African Confederation Cup game, falling 2-1 at Ethiopia’s Wolaitta Dicha after conceding a late goal in the first-leg of the competition’s round of 32 on Wednesday.

A sublime volley from Bezabeh Meleyo gave Dicha an early lead but Zamalek winger Emad Fathi pounced on a defensive mistake to level the score seven minutes before the break.

Yared Dawit scored a precious winner for Dicha after finishing off a breakaway with 12 minutes remaining to give the hosts a famous win over five-time Champions League winners Zamalek.

The Cairo giants still have a good chance to progress when they host Dicha in the second leg in Suez on 18 March.
