However, the duo started on the bench as head coach Jaime Pacheco opted to go with Emam Ashour in midfield and Achraf Bencharki upfront.

It didn’t take long for the hosts to find the breakthrough as Obama fired Zamalek into the lead inside the opening 10 minutes.

Obama received the ball outside the box and fired up a thrilling strike on the half-volley with his left foot to break the deadlock

Zamalek brought on Mostafa Mohamed in the second half as they looked to find the second goal and secure all three points.

In the 69th minute, Ahmed Sayed Zizo missed a vital chance for the White Giants after he was through on goal but Islam Tarek did well to deny him once again and clear the ball away.

The victory takes Zamalek to the top of the Egyptian Premier League table with 19 points, two ahead of arch-rivals Al Ahly.
