NA Hussein 0-0 Zamalek | HIGHLIGHTS | VIDEO
Egypt’s Zamalek nullified any threats NA Hussein Dey could have posed to settle for a 0-0 draw in Algiers and reach the African Confederation Cup quarter-finals on Sunday.
Needing just a draw to go through, Zamalek were content to sit back and soak up pressure, with the hosts failing to muster a single effort on goal in a dour affair at Stade du 5 Juillet.
The Cairo giants could have even snatched a win on the road, spurning three clear-cut chances in both halves.
Zamalek finished on top of Group D with nine points, on level with second-placed Gor Mahia who were second due to their inferior head-to-head record.
