LIVE: NA Hussein Dey v Zamalek | CAF Confederation Cup
Time: 18:00 Cairo local time
Venue: Stade 5 Juillet (Algeria)
Referee: Maguette N’Diaye (Senegal)
While a draw at Algeria’s NA Hussein Dey on Sunday will be enough to lift Zamalek to the African Confederation Cup knockout phase, the Egyptian side will be looking for a win on the road, coach Christian Gross said.
Before the crucial final matchday, all four teams in Group D have a chance to book a last-eight berth.
Zamalek top the group with eight points, one ahead of Angola’s Petro Atletico and NA Hussein Dey and two clear of Kenya’s Gor Mahia.
The White Knights will ensure their progress if they at least draw against NA Hussein Dey, while a loss will leave them waiting for the other group match between Petro Atletico and Gor Mahia to end in a draw.
But Swiss coach Gross says Zamalek will be only looking for a win in Algeria.
NA Hussein Dey famously denied Zamalek a win in Alexandria, scoring a goal at the death to hold their illustrious opponents to a 1-1 draw.
Zamalek also lost their opening match at Gor Mahia and were held to a 1-1 home draw by Petro Atletico but they recovered with two successive wins over the same opponents to move top.
