Cairo's premier football team, Zamalek SC, under the leadership of esteemed Colombian coach Juan Carlos Osorio, is gearing up for a crucial rematch. They'll face Djibouti champions, Arta Solar, on September 30th as part of the CAF Confederation Cup's round of 32.
Set to be hosted at the iconic Cairo International Stadium at 7 pm local time, details about fan attendance and other logistics will be finalized in the days leading up to the match.
The preparations come on the heels of a sobering 2-0 defeat Zamalek suffered against Arta Solar this past Saturday. In the aftermath, the team undertook vital recovery sessions at their Tanzanian base, prioritizing player wellbeing and recuperation. The drills, held within the hotel's gym facilities, were overseen by Osorio's experienced technical team, ensuring players are shielded from undue strain.
Upon their Cairo homecoming, Zamalek's sights will be set on their forthcoming Egyptian Premier League opener. A much-anticipated face-off against Pyramids FC awaits them next Thursday at the Air Defense Stadium, signaling the kick-off of their local league pursuits.
