Zamalek 1-1 Algeria’s NA Hussein Dey | Match Highlights
Egypt’s Zamalek were punished for wasting a plethora of goal-scoring chances after conceding a last-gasp equaliser in a 1-1 draw at home to Algeria’s NA Hussein Dey which left them without a win in two-group stage games at the African Confederation Cup.
The hosts took the lead on the quarter-hour mark, thanks to a maiden goal by Morocco striker Khalid Boutaib, and they looked on their way to a comfortable win after creating chances at will.
However, their wastefulness cost them dear, with the Algerians striking at the death after a defensive lapse as a 90th-minute goal from Faouzi Yaya on the second attempt broke the hearts of a vociferous crowd at Alexandria’s Borg El-Arab Stadium.
For all their superb displays in the Egyptian Premier League, which they look well-equipped to win, Zamalek appear a shadow of their efficient self in Africa’s secondary club competition despite their attractive brand of attacking football.
They lie at the bottom of Group D with one point, two behind Kenya’s Gor Mahia and Angola’s Petro Atletico and three adrift of leaders NA Hussein Dey.
