LIVE: Ittihad of Alexandria v Zamalek | Egyptian League | JAN 5TH, 2019
Time: 18:00 Cairo local time | 11:00 ET Canada-USA
Venue: Borg El-Arab stadium, Alexandria
Referee: Mahmoud Ashour
The only blot on an otherwise great season for Zamalek was caused by Ittihad as the White Knights will be looking to exact revenge on their Alexandrian opponents in the Egyptian Premier League on Saturday.
Zamalek, who look well equipped to win their first league title since 2015, were surprisingly knocked out of the Arab Zayed Cup at the last 16 stage after losing to Ittihad on a shootout following a 1-1 aggregate draw.
They might have taken Ittihad lightly in the Arab tournament game in November, especially after hammering them 5-1 in the league in the league earlier in the season for their biggest domestic win so far this term.
Zamalek will also be eyeing a ninth straight win that will confirm their status as firm favorites to win the title as their challengers falter.
