Both teams, despite being eliminated, aim to salvage their pride and finish their campaigns on a positive note.
Zamalek is currently at the bottom of Group D with only four points from five games, while Merrikh holds the third position with one point more.
The early elimination led to the dismissal of Portuguese coach Jesualdo Ferreira, and Ahmed Abdel-Maksoud is now serving as an interim coach until the appointment of a new one.
The White Knights are hoping that this game can turn around their disastrous season, which has seen them eliminated from the African Champions League, the Egyptian Cup, and fallen behind in the league title race.
The staff is seeking a victory to restore confidence and placate the anger of the fans.
Abdel-Maksoud will face the challenge of leading the team without several key players, including left-backs Ahmed Fatouh and Mohamed Abdel-Shafy, midfielder Emad “Dunga” Nabil, and Tunisia striker Seifeddine Jaziri.
However, he will be pleased to welcome back captain Mahmoud “Shikabala” Abdel-Razek, who has recovered from his injury.
