Venue: Cairo Stadium

Zamalek are set to clash against Pyramids in the seventh round of the Egyptian League on Thursday.

The Whites’ head coach Patrice Carteron named his 17-man squad for Thursday’s clash. The squad witnessed the absence of Zamalek’s captain Shikabala due to flu and Abdallah Gomaa due to an injury.

While the squad sees the return of Zamalek’s forward Omar El Saeed, who was ruled out the Whites’ 1-2 loss by Enppi and Islam Gaber.

Zamalek’s Squad is as follows:
Goalkeepers: Mohamed Awad, Mohamed Abou Gabal

Defenders: Hazem Emam, Mahmoud Alaa, Mohamed Abdel Ghani, Islam Gaber, Mohamed Abdel Shafy

Midfielders: Tarek Hamed, Ferjani Sassi, Mohamed Hassan, Ahmed Sayed “Zizo,” Youssef Obama, Mohamed Ounajem, Mostafa Fathy, Achraf Bencharki

Forwards: Mostafa Mohamed, Omar El Saed

Carteron will be looking to bring Zamalek’s league campaign back on track after they dropped five points in their opening five games to drop to fifth in the table.

But in doing so, he will face stiff opponents in Pyramids, who also made an inconsistent start after drawing three of their first three matches of the season.

However, Pyramids have still enjoyed a superb run of results in the African Confederation Cup, the continent’s secondary club competition, as they are joint leaders of their group with maximum six points from two games.

Their French coach Sebastien Desabre will be also looking to avenge Pyramid’s 3-0 loss to Zamalek in the Egypt Cup final at the end of the last season — the only highlight of Micho’s brief tenure in charge of the White Knights.

Pyramids welcome back key playmaker Abdallah El-Said after he recovered from a nagging injury, having made a cameo appearance in the team’s 6-0 win over Mauritania’s Nouadhibou in the Confederation Cup last Sunday.
