A poor start to their Group D campaign, in which they only collected two points from four games, meaning they have no option but to defeat MC Alger and Senegal’s Teungueth in their remaining two matches and hope the Algerians lose to already-qualified Esperance in the final round.

Zamalek’s early results were not a true reflection of how they fared under former coach Jaime Pacheco, whose side wasted a slew of goal-scoring chances against MC Alger, Teungueth and Tunisia’s Esperance.

In their opening match against MC Alger, they settled for a 0-0 draw in Cairo despite dominating the entire game and bombarding the visitors’ goal. In the absence of VAR in the group stage, they were also harshly denied what looked like a clear penalty in the second half.

Another goalless stalemate followed against Teungueth in a similar manner and a 3-1 loss to Esperance proved the last straw for Pacheco, who was dismissed as Zamalek sought to rescue their campaign.

Zamalek are third with two points, five behind MC Alger and eight adrift of Esperance with two matches remaining.
