Zamalek announced on Monday that they would miss head coach Jesualdo Ferreira during Tuesday’s match against Misr Lel Makkasa.
The White Knights are set to host Misr Lel Makkasa in matchweek 29 of the Egyptian League on Tuesday at Cairo Stadium.
Meanwhile, Zamalek revealed that Ferreira, and defender Hossam Abdel Majid will miss Tuesday’s match because of receiving the third yellow card during El Gouna match.
Emam Ashour has been ruled out due after he was sent off during El Gouna match.
On his part, the Portuguese head coach held a meeting with the players ahead of the training session calling upon them to focus more in the upcoming matches, especially El Makkasa’s game.
He also stressed the importance of securing the win during the upcoming game in order to end the title’s race in favor of them. The White Knights managed to defeat El Gouna 4-1 in matchweek 28 of the Egyptian League on Friday.
Zamalek were granted a penalty kick after just six minutes into the game duo to a foul on Seif El Din Al Jaziri. The current Egyptian League top-scorer Ahmed Sayed Zizo converted it from the penalty spot.
Seven minutes before the break, Seif El Din Al Jaziri darted into the box to control a pass on his chest, but his effort was blocked and Zizo should have done better than slot the rebound wide of the target.
12 minutes after the break, the Tunisian international guided Sayed Neymar’s low cross into the back of the net with a smart finish.
Nine minutes before the break, Emam Ashour received a well-player pass from skipper Shikabala, cutting inside the penalty area, before hammering the ball into the back of the net. Shmelese Bickly pulled one back for El Gouna in 83rd minute.
