Team News: Zamalek
There aren’t many personnel worries, with just the lone fitness concern for the Zamalek manager Patrice Carteron to be concerned about thanks to an otherwise robust group of players. Mohamed Awad (Muscle Injury) is sidelined.
Team News: Pyramids
Thanks to a completely injury-free squad available to select from, Pyramids boss has no fitness concerns at all coming into this clash.

We’re expecting it to be that close.
